The biggest players in the highly competitive field of illustration
Culled from our Illustration Now! series is this selection of today’s most successful and important illustrators from around the globe.

The final cut, including artists such as Istvan Banyai, Gary Baseman, Seymour Chwast, Paul Davis, Brad Holland, Mirko Ilić, Anita Kunz, and Christoph Niemann, provides a snapshot of the highly dynamic and diverse world of contemporary illustration.
