Wigan, Mark

"Basics Illustration 04: Global Contexts will take the reader on a journey through the international contemporary illustration landscape. In the twenty-first century, the field of illustration continues to evolve, and through a broad and contextual approach, this book illuminates its rich historical development, its contribution to civilizations of the past and its continuing cultural significance and promising future. All over the world, versatile, forward-thinking illustrators are having fun making pictures for defined contexts; seeking, sharing and creating both online and offline. Global Contexts features intelligent, allusive, compelling, incisive, humorous and inspiring illustrations by leading exponents past, present and future, embracing open approaches and new strategies to the subject. This is an essential reference book for any dedicated art and design student, aspiring illustrator, professional image-maker and anyone with an interest in this vibrant and dynamic form of expression."--Bloomsbury Publishing
