Illustration has been my love for a long time. It is satisfying to see when someone masters their own unique style and knows how their lines and palette of colors work. It is in a different genre from conceptual work and the high art but the three cross over in the ambiguous way art always does.

Since illustration as a medium requires you to show off your style, it is difficult to say what makes you memorable in the contemporary world. But there are some very eye-catching works both in the past and present.

In this post, I just wanted to show readers some of my favorite illustrators since I want everyone to know about them.

Akiya Kageichi (contemporary)



Alphonse Mucha

The more “fine art” works of Mucha in the Slav Epic. His vibrant choice of color still shines through. 

J.C. Leyendecker


Norman Rockwell

James Jean (contemporary)
