Illustration, Culture, Society Winter 2012
The Muse is explored in issue 20 of Varoom – the illustration report.
While ‘inspiration’ often simply means context-free imitation of style, the true Muse has many sources. Varoom discovers that the Muse is a powerful mix of critical reflection, hard work and love.
Varoom 20 covers Polish illustration; Natural history illustration and the Ghost of Gone Birds project; Irish illustrator Grace Plunkett; street art from the Ukraine; Ted Baker’s project with AOI; the work of Thea Brine and much more. All wrapped up in a cover illustration by Aude Van Ryn.
