'Hand to Eye: Contemporary Illustration'

Publications — Nov 03, 2003

Angus Hyland curates a book showcasing the work of forty-five illustrators from around the world.

Including both commissioned artwork and experimental projects, the work collected here shows that cutting-edge computer illustration is still thriving and continues to push boundaries. The book focuses on the move towards handcrafted style as a logical reaction to the torrent of digital imagery. 

Hand to Eye reflects these diverse approaches to image-making, from the cleanness of slick, vector-based work, through photorealism, to a lo-fi, handcrafted aesthetic; from exquisitely detailed, brightly coloured collages to simple, single-colour sketches.
