The folks over at UPPERCASE, publishers of books and magazines “for the creative and curious” have just released the 3rd edition of their beautiful Work/Life directory. What’s special about this series is that it’s a unique and gorgeous take on the illustration annual format.
“Unlike awards annuals or traditional illustration directories, our publication gets personal. Artists are individually interviewed about their creative focus and artistic technique as well as your inspirations and aspirations. Additional imagery (sketchbook pages, studio shots, inspirational objects or personally illustrated anecdotes) are integral to each participant’s spread, allowing the reader to take a peek into their work/life.
With the third edition, we are pushing the personal nature of Work/Life to a new level. This edition’s theme is “An Illustrated Life” in which we explore the ups and downs of illustration and what it takes to stay creative. Each participant will offer their unique take on this theme. Each participant has created a bespoke illustration assignment specific to their interests and story. “
