illo Magazine Issue #2

Illo is a gorgeous, high-quality magazine about contemporary illustration, produced by Daniel Zimmer. Discerning art connoisseurs might already be familiar with his other wonderful publication, Illustration, which focuses on the history of the art form.

The second issue of Illo is now on the stands, featuring interviews with and lots of gorgeous art by such great illustrators as James Gurney, Nancy Stahl and Zina Saunders. In a stroke of crazy good luck, I also happen to be featured in the issue. There's a very long and exhaustive interview with me and a lot of my artwork.

I got my copies in the post this week, and I have to say, I was utterly humbled to be included in such a beautiful publication and in the company of such incredible artists. They even put me on the cover, which will probably make my mom extremely happy.

You can find Illo #2 on newstands and bookstores now, but you can also check out images of the entire magazine on its website here.

Yo Mr. Cho... great work my friend. I see that you're gonna be at the Expo! I'll be there with the folks from The Anthology Project all day Friday and Saturday. Let's make sure to hook up and say hello!

Michael Cho said...

Thanks for all the congratulations, folks -- it was very flattering to be featured in the mag.

Gregor: I have no idea if you can subscribe to it in the UK. You're probably best off asking the publisher on their website (see the post for the link)...or visiting the store Will Kane mentioned :)

I really enjoyed this issue. Your feature was great (I learned new things about you too), plus the rest of the magazine was terrific too from start to finish!

What a treat.
