The Illustrators Survival Guide

Ivan Canu, Giacomo Benelli (Authors)

An illustrated guide to survival for illustrators, a map to navigate the sea of ​​trade and a "behind the scenes" story of the profession, including covers, illustrated books, self-production, contracts and international appointments.

Mimaster Illustration has collected the most common questions and professional doubts born out of ten years of training, and answers them with practical advice. How to make a cover, how to prepare a portfolio, how to contact an art director, how to use social media for self-promotion.

With the texts by Ivan Canu (Mimaster Illustration Director) and Giacomo Benelli (Mimaster Illustration teaching coordination) and with the advice of internationally renowned art directors, publishers and illustrators such as Matt Dorfman, Emiliano Ponzi, Riccardo Vecchio, Noma Bar, Katsumi Komagata, Beatrice Alemagna, The Illustrators Survival Guide is the first in a series of books dedicated to publishing professions, in collaboration with Fondazione Arnoldo and Alberto Mondadori and with the contribution of Fondazione Cariplo.

Mimaster Illustration is an international training centre of excellence, established in 2009 in Milan. It is a place dedicated to the illustration profession: from the picture book, to magazines & newspapers, to new media, to infographics and to self-production.
