Back in 2005 this great little magazine started up called Illustration '05. The whole magazine was all about illustration, nothing else. I subscribed right away and enjoyed issues containing stunning images printed to the highest caliber, and informative interviews with some of the top talent in the industry. The first two issues featured Peter de Seve, Marc Gabbana, Joe De Vito, Joeseph Csatari, C.F. Payne, Sergio Giovine, Leslie Cabarga. All that in only two issues! (Illustration '05)
Sadly, there wasn't enough interest, as in subscribers, to keep this this great little magazine in print. But there's good news. illo. is back! With a new name, Illustration '05 just wouldn't work anymore, but the same great look and superb quality. Be sure to check out their website. Just click on the magazine cover in the archives. You'll find in-depth previews. There are even some back issues from '05 still available. Head over to order button and place your order. I placed mine. And I'm really looking forward to the upcoming issue featuring James Gurney. How about you? Let's make sure this great magazine is around for a long, long time.
