Feature in Illustrators Magazine (UK)

I'm very excited to receive advance copies of the next Illustrators Magazine, issue #19, where my work is the cover feature. This quarterly magazine, based in the UK, covers illustrators around the world, past and present. 

The article includes 35 images, many of which are reproduced in a double page spread, plus a newly written bio by Thomas Kintner.

The new issue also includes an article on Jacques Onfroy de Bréville (1858-1931), known as Job. His well-researched historical illustrations made their way into European children's books and comics.

There's also an article on the quirky horror comics by Dutch artist Erik Kriek.
You can pick up a copy of Illustrators #19 at the publisher's website and it will soon be available at Stuart Ng books. (pub: The Book Palace, 2017. 98 page illustrated squarebound magazine. Price: £18.00 (UK), $21.99 (US). ISBN: 978-1-907081-41-5. ISSN: 2052-6520)
Book Palace also published the excellent book Drawing from History: The Forgotten Art of Fortunino Matania

What a lovely cover your painting makes. I always loved the beautiful full size paintings on the magazine covers from 1900's and this reminds me of them. Congratulations! - Barbara

This cover is one of my all time favorites. More than Parrish, even.

Congratulations, James! Just a curiosity: have you ever considered (or have been proposed) to make an "art of James Gurney" book, soon or later? :)

I heard this was in the works. Glad to see that it's finally out. Congratulations, James, on a well deserved honor. I look forward to getting my copy.
