My atrwork “revolution seventy” have been selected as part of Luerzer’s Archive 2009/2010 Best Illustrators worldwide!
The latest edition boasts an excellent mix of familiar names and new talents. Just 49 illustrators featured in the previous two issues managed to keep their place in the current 200 Best, and are now joined by 152 new artists. Selection was made from 4,716 submissions received from 44 countries.
And there was a further hurdle to scale before submissions could even be considered. Only those nominated by an ad agency art director or a publisher were eligible to present work, which must have appeared within the last 18 months – to the two-tier jury. Those who made it through this arduous process truly do merit the title “200 Best Illustrators.”
For creatives and art buyers in the world“s top agencies, 200 Best Illustrators has since become a standard reference work that is a must-have on any art director“s desk. Launched in 2004/2005 with a run of just 10,000, the volume had a circulation of 20,000 by issue 2006/2007, and this figure has since risen to 30,000.
