another brilliant find from the shelves of the local library. this book showcases the work of 150 illustrators from around the world. even gives you their web addresses and email addresses if you're inclined to commission them for the cover of the new york magazine that you might be the editor of.

it shows a huge range of illustration styles and it's very inspirational no matter what brand of creativity you're into i reckon.

At the Taschen bi-annual book sale this was the least popular book on sale. There was a huge untouched stack of them, and I was pretty surprised.

This book's an excellent compilation of the most up and coming commercial artist-animators creating art these days, a few names which will be familiar to you: Charles Burns (Black Hole), Tara McPherson, Owen Smith, and Gary Baseman.

Then there are others that are equally deserving of your attention: Thomas Kuhlenbeck, Lilycat, Tanja Szekessy, Istvan Ba
