Varoom: Expanded Content and Brilliant Imagery Illuminate Issue 11
Following the successful re-launch of issue 10, Varoom returns with another bold cover.
With the contiued expertise of Studio Fernando Gutierrez, issue 11 looks to carry on the trend of appealing to a much broader audience and still reflect the positioning of illustration, culture, society.
The New Wave Old Wave features some illustration legends including Seymour Chwast (founder of Push Pin Studios), Ralph Steadman (long-time Hunter S. Thompson collaborator) and Shirley Hughes (author of children's classic Alfie).
They discuss three significant pieces from a lifetime of work, and select a contemporary illustrator they keep an eye on.
Academic Des McCannon's From Folk Culture To Modern British explores how illustrators inspired by folk art are creating a new image of British Nationhood.
In The Hood Life, London Journalist Liz Farrelly visits Scottish illustrator Peter Arkle in his Lower East Side neighbourhood, and delivers an intimate portrait of an illustrator whose newspaper of his everyday life fuels a highly successful career creating work for clients such as The New York Times and Nike.
