| We give you the very best from the wide, sometimes overlooked, world of illustration art, including original artwork for comics (comic books) and annuals, book covers and illustrations, graphic novels, magazines, film animation cels, newspaper and comic strips, poster art, album cover art, superb fine art reproductions and high quality art prints.|
Our gallery brings together the work of artists from all over the world and from many genres, including fantasy, horror, science fiction, education, history, nature, technology, humour, romance, glamour, architecture, whimsy and even political satire and caricature.
| Our art is Original, that is the unique art work painted or drawn by the artist for use in a publication or poster. We do also have a selection of Prints including many Limited Editions. As you will see, illustrators are not shy of employing many techniques and media in their quest to communicate and entertain, so we are pleased to offer watercolour, pen and ink, oil, wash, gouache, pencil, acrylic, crayon, giclée, mixed media and charcoal, amongst others.|
We have over 30 years experience in sourcing and selling original illustration art and are very proud to have this showcase of wonderful art. With over 600 featured artists, we hope you enjoy browsing our gallery ... and of course, everything you see is for sale (except in the archive)!
| From the beginning of the 20th century demand for original art to illustrate books, magazines and comics grew dramatically, especially with the advent of mass printing and production techniques. In the 1920s and 1930s a few artists in the UK and the USA (where the demand for magazine illustration grew enormously) became household names and their work commands huge sums of money. |
Names in the USA such as NC Wyeth, Frank Schoonover, Maxfield Parrish, Jessie Wilcox Smith, and in England names such as Arthur Rackham, Edmund Dulac, Willy Pogany, EH Shepard, Mabel Lucie Attwell, William Heath Robinson and Louis Wain are all widely known and respected.
| These artists represent a tiny fraction of an enormous body of art seldom if ever seen in its original form. Art commissioned and created for books and periodicals has always been celebrated in its printed form, but the publishers - and often the artists themselves - have not realised the enormous appeal of the originals. The public often have not even been aware that originals exist and are available to own and enjoy.|
Hundreds of thousands of original drawings and paintings have over the years been lost or destroyed by publishers through a lack of interest or imagination, despite the fact that many of the images created are already 20th century icons.
Our aim is to present the wide variety of illustration art in all its various forms for the collector and fan alike to own and enjoy. New art is added to the Gallery every month.
