Visualizing healthcare

When it comes to the debate over universal healthcare coverage no one can accuse Americans of being apathetic. Your readers are passionate about the subject, and powerful illustrations can illuminate the issue in a way that typical, overused stock just can’t match.
.
This issue of Profiles features a selection of healthcare-related images that are anything but typical and they’re available for licensing from the artists at ProFile Stock. And if you have a need for something more specific, I encourage you to work with any of the artists at ProFile Stock to create a custom solution.
.
Thank you for supporting artist-friendly stock.

Among the “200 Best Illustrators Worldwide”

The latest edition of 200 Best Illustrators Worldwide from Lürzer’s Archive just arrived in my mailbox. True to form, this new volume full of amazing images and I’m especially impressed by the broad range of work represented. I also can’t help but notice how many of our ProFile Stock members are included. I counted at least 21 pieces by ProFile artists in the issue including the cover image by Edel Rodriguez. We take great pride in the fact that ProFile Stock is the only stock resource where you’ll find the archives of so many of the world’s top illustrators and it’s gratifying to see that confirmed by this well-respected publication.
.
In honor of those who’ve been recognized by Lürzer’s as the world’s best I thought I’d use this issue of Profiles to show you a few examples of their work.

Jon Krause

 

John Krause creates images that are typically characterized by a sense of calm that masks an elegant edginess and witty irony. His intelligent, thought-provoking illustrations firmly grasp the viewers attention at first glance, but the second glance is often rewarded with an unexpected visual twist.

Jon executes his compelling concepts with strong compositions and a tastefully subdued color palette.

As one of the few masters of the genre, I wanted to hear Jon’s secrets for successful concepts.

Q: What do you think makes a strong conceptual illustration?

A: I think that while the communication or suggestion of the text is vital, an image that allows viewers to draw their own conclusions through the illustration makes it much more appealing. Sometimes, I really just like to look at cool pictures too.

Q: What’s the key to an effective artist/art director relationship?

A: Trust, both ways, leads to an effective collaboration.

 

Q: Do you like to have ideas from an art director to start with or do you prefer to develop your ideas independently?

A: I prefer to come up with the ideas, but I’ve worked in situations where a certain idea has been concepted and approved and needs to be adhered to. In those cases I work out a lot of different sketches and compositions to produce the best image I can, staying true to both the clients vision and my own.

Q: What medium do you work in?
A: I work in acrylic, on wood or paper. I also have a Close Encounters of the Third Kind style Devil’s Tower of rejected sketches piling up in my basement.
