From the Publisher. Once seen as a craft under threat of extinction by digital technology, Illustration has recently experienced a new wave of popularity and is now seen everywhere - in editorial design, fashion publicity, advertising, music graphics and web design. Pen and Mouse investigates the work of the image-makers whose profession occupies the space between graphic design and fine art and whose tools are increasingly those of a digital medium. Though many artists continue to execute a large part of their work by hand, the usefulness of the computer as a tool is now widely acknowledged. Some illustrators produce purely digital artwork, while many create fascinating hybrid forms that combine digital and traditional media. Featuring a range of contemporary approaches to illustration, the book reveals the innovative areas of current practice." "The work of forty-five cutting-edge illustrators from around the world is shown, reflecting vastly differing styles. Contributors include Anthony Burrill, Nick Higgins, Kim Hiorthoy, Kinsey, John Maeda, Mike Mills, Akio Morishima, Reggie Pedro, Graham Rounthwaite and Kam Tang.
