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 […]

Illustrators # 15 (magazine review).

Remember me writing that there was another month before the next issue of ‘Illustrators’ was due earlier in the month? I had a nice surprise when issue 15 came through the letterbox. For those buying, I should point out that these magazines come in protective plastic bags inside cardboard packing. By far the biggest section […]

Illustrators #11 (magazine review).

To stop me getting withdrawal symptoms after reading and reviewing ‘Illustrators’ twice a month, I decided to read the last of the back issues to this month. If you’ve been picking up these issues as well, we aren’t too far from the release of the new issue. With Illustrators # 11, we start with a […]

Illustrators # 5 (magazine review).

Seeing a stylised Alfred E. Numan on the cover of Illustrators # 5 seems an odd choice until reading the first interview with Mick Brownfield who adopts his art and style to the requirement of his clients. He relates how a couple generations back that the art editors in those days had at least a […]

Illustrators # 12 (magazine review).

Jumping back to last year, we have Illustrator # 12, again with a spectrum of art talent, so there should be something here to interest most of you. The first two are digital artists with a divergent technique, although both have been influenced by animation. Andrew ‘Android’ Jones digitally paints with an eye for fine […]

Illustrators # 2 (magazine review).

With Illustrators # 2, we look at the late artist David Wright whose claim to fame during his career was to paint beautiful women and fast cars for various top end magazines from the 1930s-60s for both sides of the pond. However, even these does not make for a steady income. Influenced by Alex Raymond’s […]

Illustrators # 1 (magazine review).

Having just reviewed the latest issue of ‘Illustrators’, I was curious about the first issue which came out in 2012. It’s always interesting to see how magazines evolve and with an art magazine, the choice of artists they start off with. On top of that, how often have to wished we could lay our hands […]

Illustrators #14 (magazine review).

With the fourteenth issue of ‘Illustrators’ out, we have a selection of six artists work to look at and take your breath away. This time, there’s even one I know and interviewed a couple years back. The first is Tara McPherson. An artist with an unusual bent for painting ladies with holes in the heart, […]

Illustrators # 10 (magazine review).

Illustrators # 10 gets off to a great start with a look at the work of William Stout. He mixes his love of dinosaurs and zombies across the media of book covers to film production to museum work with the odd book chucked in. He also works across the medium for pen and ink to […]
