Illustrators #27 (magazine review).

For a change, the 27th edition of ‘Illustrators’ takes a western slant, looking at the work of two significant artists and a certain masked man. If I haven’t hooked you into buying these magazines by now, you will know that it’s the art regardless of subject that is always a point of interest.   Our […]

Illustrators #26 (magazine review).

As I’m often said in the past, I look forward to every edition of ‘Illustrators’ and there is no exception with the 26th issue with a mixture of period art and cartoon illustrating. Even enough contrast to keep everyone happy. The opening artist is John Millar-Watt (1895-1975) who could turn his hand to any medium. […]

Illustrators #25 (magazine review).

The 25th issue of ‘Illustrators’ and it’s practically a cheesecake or girlie edition. Former editor Peter Richardson explains how the magazine first started as a means to show unfamiliar artists which often explains why I’m always finding surprises. They seriously look for the artists you might have missed. The first is French artist Milo Manara […]

Illustrators #24 (magazine review).

As I’ve often commented in other books reviews, it’s always fascinating seeing the film poster art from other countries and how they convey the movies to their respective publics. With the 24th issue of ‘Illustrators’ you get to see an entire wad of French poster art which they call ‘affiche’, which is a direct translation […]

Illustrators #23 (magazine review).

First, as announced in this edition of ‘Illustrators’, this is the last edition edited by Peter Richardson, who hands over this important task to Diego Cordoba next time around. Looking at Richardson’s comments, Cordoba has been doing a lot of this work already with his own pages so I doubt if there will be a […]

Illustrators #21 (magazine review).

The latest issue of ‘Illustrators’ starts off with a 30 page interview with artist Rodney Matthews. A couple thing I learnt from the off is that he hails from my home county of Somerset and doesn’t sign his work, relying on being recognised by his style. I did wonder why that although I have some […]

Illustrators # 20 (magazine review).

This issue of ‘Illustrators’ is devoted to Russian artists. As such, we see the work from their homeland which makes an interesting contrast to other material we’ve seen in the past. The opening section is devoted to a group of artists called ‘The Wanderers’ or Iterants who in the mid-19th century, instead of relying on […]

Illustrators #18 (magazine review).

My usual page flick of the latest issue of ‘Illustrators’ quickly revealed that it this isn’t a normal edition. If anything, it’s darn right cartoony. Hardly surprising when the opener is ‘Mad’ caricature artist Mort Drucker. Over the years, you’ve probably seen his art but not put a name to his drew them. Drucker was […]

Illustrators # 17 (magazine review).

I always get a happy gleam in my eye when I recognise a particular cardboard envelope through the letterbox. Two on the same day just feels even luckier although I will be discussing the two magazines separately. The first is Illustrators # 17 and its look at Mort Kűntsler’s staggering amount of paintings over the […]

Illustrators # 16 (magazine review).

Although I could probably think of a couple better choices of covers from the contents for Illustrators # 16, I can’t recall seeing this montage of Superman illustrations by Neal Adams before. According to the Peter Stone written text inside, Adams has them pinned on a wall in his studio when interviewed and, although no […]
