From Uppercase: "
Unlike awards annuals or traditional illustration directories, our publication gets personal. Artists are individually interviewed about their creative focus and artistic technique as well as their inspirations and aspirations. Additional imagery (sketchbook pages, studio shots, inspirational objects or personally illustrated anecdotes) are integral to each participant’s spread, allowing the reader to take a peek into their work/life.
With the third edition, we are pushing the personal nature of Work/Life to a new level. This edition's theme is "An Illustrated Life" in which we explore the ups and downs of illustration and what it takes to stay creative. Each illustrator offers their unique take on this theme. Each participant has also created a bespoke illustration assignment specific to their interests and story."
