Portraits in art; Illustration
The field of illustration has flourished over the last decade, with professionals working both on computers and by hand. In illustration, the single most challenging and captivating subject has been the portrait, frequently used in editorials, advertising, products, and most recently, being the subject of major exhibitions.

This book gathers together the exclusive portrait work of over 80 illustrators from all over the world, many of whom were featured in our Illustration Now! series, including Aaron Jasinski, Andre Carrilho, Hanoch Piven, Anita Kunz, Jody Hewgill, and Dugald Stermer. The book also includes an index of subjects and an introduction by graphic design historian Steven Heller.

Illustration Now! is your essential work of reference to the world's latest, most exciting artists. The series' easy-to-navigate A-Z entries include current and recent projects and artist information such as biographical details, listed agents, exhibitions, and websites.
