This work “ILLUSTRATION 2024” is the latest version of the best-selling “ILLUSTRATION” series.
This book features 150 talented artists who cross over Japan's illustration scene, which is attracting attention from all over the world, from a wide variety of pop culture to ever-changing internet culture.
All of the featured artists have been replaced since the previous book, ``ILLUSTRATION 2023'', allowing you to experience the cutting edge of contemporary illustration.
The cover of 2024, the 10th anniversary issue, is the first artist collaboration in the series. This is a one-of-a-kind cover visual that is a collaboration between two artists who are currently attracting attention: “tamimoon x Hakuki Shiroi.”
The end of the book includes interviews with singer Ado, who has continued to lead the Japanese music scene since his shocking debut with "Usseywa," and art director Keita Mori, who has created many edgy book bindings. Includes a special conversation between Tamimoon and Shiroi Hakuki about the production process of this book's cover visual.
Furthermore, this book is printed using the latest printing technology ``Brilliant Palette®'', which is specialized for art books and art prints. You can fully enjoy the charm of each artist's worldview, color usage, and brushstrokes.
An artist who draws women with a focus on fashion. Established illustration model agency "tamimoon" in February 2022. She published her first art book, IDENTITY, in the same year.
She started creating art in 2017 and began exhibiting her works in 2018. The colors and other images in her work are inspired by digital information on the Internet. The work she creates through her own body has the concept of ``having mass in the material world,'' and the weight (grams) of the ink she uses serves as the title of the work. The concept of the work incorporates the act of the purchaser directly cutting out the artwork and pasting it on a familiar object, as a kind of complicity between the artist and the viewer.
