My favorite Illustrators from "Making Comics" by Scott McCloud


Making Comics by Scott McCloud


This is a list of Illustrators that caught my eye in the awesome book
"Making Comics" by Scott McCloud which I read recently and is full of important information if you are a self-taught illustrator or comic artist so I definitely recommend you to check it out.

This list is in no particular order, although I like the ones marked with (*) and really liked the ones marked with (**):


  • Colleen Doran - Illustrator and comic artists, art similar to Mucca but missing perspective studies
  • P. Craig Russell - American comics artist, writer, and illustrator. Retro realistic, colors, much, fantasy.

  • Derek Kirk Kim - Korean-American writer, director, and artist. 
  • Amy Kim Ganter - American author and illustrator of original English-language manga.
  • Kazu Kibuishi - American graphic novel author and illustrator. He is best known for being the creator and editor of the comic anthology Flight.
  • Svetlana Chmakova** - Russian-Canadian comic book artist. 
  • Bryan Lee O’Malley** - Canadian cartoonist, best known for the Scott Pilgrim series.
  • Hergé** - Georges Prosper Remi, known by the pen name Hergé, was a Belgian cartoonist. He is best known for creating The Adventures of Tintin.
