Communication Arts Illustration Annual ’14
A selection of the best international illustration work: The Illustration Annual.
Digital, pen-and-ink, collage, oil-on-canvas. Numerous styles and formats. Some 4.300 works were sent in for Communication Arts’ Illustrated Annual, a few hundred are published. Surprisingly the number of digital submissions was less than expected, hand-drawn straightforward illustration was favorite. One of the jurors: “I find that illustration is going through a new golden age. There are new venues of publishing art, mostly online and in small print runs. Artists, new and old, publish and share more work, and discuss their thought process. A stronger international community of illustrators has developed, which allows for collaborations across countries.”
