BY WAY OF ILLUSTRATION Book Series Volume 2

DOCUMENTING THE CREATIVE POSSIBILITIES

Curated Showcase of South African LEGACY

BY WAY OF ILLUSTRATION Zooms into the lives, workspaces, and journeys of illustrators.

In today’s connected and curious world, Africa’s talented creators and storytellers actively contribute to the global creative community and its economy. Even with a multibillion-dollar creative industry, however, many still struggle to build and grow sustainable careers that can support and improve their quality of life. this book wants to change this for illustrators like across africa.

 

First launched in 2019 as an event series in Johannesburg and now evolving into a book series, By Way Of Illustration (BWOI) has helped illustrators across the continent by making room for conversations on the practice, business and career opportunities of the world of professional illustration. 

 

BWOI’s first book Series captures these stories, actively zooming into the lives, workspaces, career paths and insights of illustrators to further support and grow their creative community.

Telling our story Illustrators share their journeys – the lessons, challenges, and triumphs with revealing and unfiltered honesty. It’s a curation of the life and career lessons of illustrators known for breaking visual conceptual barriers and gaining sought-after recognition. This is their story.
