Jillian Tamaki

22 Apr

 Jillian Tamaki is a Brooklyn, NY-based illustrator and comics artist, who also teaches at the School of Visual Arts. Her style is a wonderful mixture of traditional and modern touches that is a pleasure to look at.

Jillian posted a fantastic project for Penguin Books about a month ago on her blog. These three hand-embroidered book covers took her two months to complete and are extremely detailed and truly beautiful. The final printed covers will be sculptural-embossed, a production value that will emphasize the stitches, and have full wraparound images with french flaps. They will be available for sale in October, 2011.

See more of Jillian’s wonderful work on her sketchblog or read her webcomic, SuperMutant Magic Academy.

Extraordinary stuff, Jillian!
