20 top illustrators from across the UK are coming to Cheshire for ‘The Real Draw’. From the classic draftsmanship of book illustration to the modern digital form of illustration that is sweeping popular culture, the show has a complete cross section of illustration as an art -form.
Direct references to the origins of Illustration can be found in Talya Baldwins delicate animal depictions that would delight any book publisher. Artists such as Steph Coathupe and Carl Hoare reference the golden age of illustration (1880 – 1914) when illustration was used for public posters and notices.
AOI member, Chris Moore, who has produced illustrations for ‘Jaws’, Stephen King’s book covers and is renowned for his science fiction artwork, is showing work.
