Basics Illustration: Thinking Visually by Mark Wigan features a wide range of work, demonstrating diverse visual languages, context, ideas, techniques and skills. It also looks at the ways in which illustrators develop their own personal visual language. Contemporary illustrators from all over the world engaged in a diverse range of approaches to the discipline have contributed their artwork and commentaries on visual thinking and the working process. The text also features the work of recent graduates, present students and observations from educators past and present. This edition has been updated to include a new chapter on illustration for the digital context and new approaches to working. A host of contributors will also be supplying new work, broadening the international scope of the book.
