Illustrators In & Out - and the question : ‘What Moves Them and How They Move Art?’

Colourful and yet relevant – the 'Illustrators In & Out' publication dares to tackle the much-neglected attempt to merge illustration with commerce, such as the 'tactics' an illustrator needs to apply to avoid ending up as a visual appetiser fed to the sharks in a market economy that is so oversaturated with visualisation.

The publication features works by Jon Burgerman, Keiichi Tanaami, Catalina Estrada and Lotie.

Its creators take a personal look at the ‘In’ — defined as the artist’s inner creativity, and the ‘Out’ — the value of illustration as a commodity within the global marketplace.

'In & Out' is a guideline for artists and designers alike, who take their career as serious as it gets – artists who actually want to live off their craftsmanship and labour.

In the words of In & Out: ‘The Q & A interview format alongside each featured artist profile lends a variety of first-person perspectives to the discussion, and handwritten artist questionnaires replete with original doodles add to this inspiring resource for aspiring professional artists.’

Examples of this interesting Q&A can be found right here on GoSee.
