Bloomsbury author Gary Embury has been busy helping put together the 2015 Reportager Award, open to both students and professionals wanting to show off their reportage and documentary drawing skills.
This is my second book about illustration, and like the first, Illustration: A Theoretical and Contextual Perspective, I’ve endeavoured to present an objective and non-discriminatory view of the whole discipline. I say this because there are so many other books that are mainly celebratory, either for a particular practitioner or genre, that don’t actually consider what makes an image work as a successful form of contextualised communication. And I emphasise context − in other words, the job of work an illustration is commissioned to do and the audience it is aimed at.
