Illustration has become chic again, gaining new popularity in editorial design, fashion, and advertising. Pen and Mouse features the work of today’s top image-makers, whose craft is considered somewhere between graphic design and fine art and whose tools are increasingly those of the digital medium. This stunning book showcases hundreds of spectacular, groundbreaking illustrations by more than 40 international artists whose work reflects a remarkably diverse range of styles.
In this unique guide, leading graphic artist Angus Hyland discusses the fascinating effect technology has on today’s commercial artists—from artists working primarily by hand to those producing purely digital artwork, as well as artists who produce an alluring hybrid of digital with traditional media. Engaging text reveals each artist’s personal thoughts on the current state of illustration, what inspires them and their art, and their own relationship with cutting-edge electronic versus classic hand-drawn techniques.
Features unique illustrations from such leading artists as:

Much has been said about how the computer has murdered creativity. More has been said about how everything that comes out of it, or looks like it came out of it, is great. Pen and Mouse reflects a third attitude that traditional technologies and the computer come together to produce great work. And great work is what is inside, the variety, intelligence, and beauty of which can shift the imagination of any visual artist. Alongside these works there are over 40 interviews breaking apart the titles of illustrator, designer, and artist and presenting a multifaceted answer to that age-old question of the relationship between craft and technology. The book is weighted towards work from the U.K., but the time it takes to see this is evidence that the issues raised are broader than a regional discussion, and the work inside is nothing short of amazing. --Juliette CezzarAbout the Author:
