Showcase 100 is a juried exhibition and publication of 100 illustrations from some of the best professional illustrators working in the industry today. The project strives to showcase a wide variety of artworks that represent the trends and quirks of the creative market during the year leading up to the exhibition. It will encompass illustrations created for all markets, in any country, and by artists who may be 30 year veterans of the industry or just starting out in their careers.
Running Showcase 100 for the members of hire an illustrator is The Little Chimp Society. With three big international art projects and exhibitions under it’s belt, the LCS is well-placed to manage an event that we are sure will prove to be a great success! SC100 will become a regular feature of the hire an illustrator calendar as we plan to hold the event every two years.
All artwork will be judged blind by our panel on each piece’s individual merits to ensure the selection process is completely fair. Our judges are all involved in the industry as illustrators, art directors, designers and promotors, and have many years of experience behind them.
All of the work selected for the final 100 will be printed and framed for the exhibition, to be held in central London, and included in the accompanying publication.
This is the biggest project The Little Chimp Society has ever done and this time round it’s exclusively for members of Hire An Illustrator. With several shows over the last few years including the brilliant Mail Me Art nicely tucked away by the LCS we’re really looking forward to Showcase 100.
