Peter de Sève

One of my favorite illustrators, who I get to see pretty regularly in the New Yorker. Sit on the home page of his website for a bit and you can watch the progression of an illustration from initial sketch to final art. He has a blog called “A Sketchy Past,” which is also the name of a beautiful color book available of his work.

Caitlin Hackett

A Brooklyn artist, Caitlin Hackett explores the relationship between humans and animals. I love that she does much of her artwork in ballpoint pen—back to basics in that way, though there is nothing basic about her work. Check out her website.

All Over Coffee is a strip that is published every Sunday in the San Francisco Chronicle. I discovered Paul Madonna and his work in the book All Over Coffee, the first collection of those strips—it’s one of my favorite books. The strip features sketches from all over San Francisco, often with commentary. A new collection will be available in March 2001, called Everything Is Its Own Reward.
