Illusive. Contemporary Illustration Part 3 / by Andrew Bannecker


I'm thrilled to have been asked to be in Illusive 3

It comes out this September!

Over the past four years, Illusive and Illusive 2 have documented the flourishing discipline of illustration and established its expressive, poetic and esteemed voice in contemporary visual culture. They introduced world-class illustrators of the time as well as discovering fresh talent still yet to be found by the mainstream. The third volume of the series further documents the thriving medium of contemporary illustration with work by illustrators curated from around the globe. 

Independent from fleeting trends, illustration continues to burgeon on its own grounds. Illusive. Contemporary Illustration Part 3 addresses the inexhaustible possibilities of styles and techniques that are practiced today through the broad range of examples featured that span from fashion illustration to the current flirtation with figurative painting, material application as well as deconstruction and collage. The lavish illustrations covering page after page and copious texts and interviews with leading design agencies, once again provide context and give valuable insight as how the design discipline functions. 

As with the previous installments, the editors have scouted even more new and emerging talents in this volume making it the definitive reference and veritable guide to the best in illustration today.
