FEATURED IN THIS ISSUE:
It turns out that all those hours spent with a HB pencil was the perfect training for our all-singing and dancing digital media. Liz Farrelly talks to Fred Deakin and Miles Donovan, and discovers why clients love down and dirty animation.
With clients such as The Guardian and Nike, Mimi Leung is a successful illustrator. She is currently a Sexual Assault Worker working for an Aboriginal-owned NGO. She reflects on her experience and reveals how her creative skills have helped her in her new role.
Beyond design and illustration aficionados, 1980s design group The Cloth are little known. Yet they featured on some of the best-selling record sleeves and fashions of all time. Ian Massey and Andrew Dineley get the inside story on the band who improvised a way of working across fashion, textiles, painting, illustration and graphic design.
THE ART OF THE SPEECH BALLOON
The speech and thought balloon is more than a visual convention. Artist Lizzie Ridout looks at the history of the speech balloon and at some of the masters of the form.
Paul Davis continues his regular column A Life In Illustration where he tells a story of his thought-provoking bus journey to see a potential client. Marian Bantjes presents a map of an Isle of Knowledge, with all the ups and downs of a terrain all illustrators are familiar with.
