I recently did an illustration for The Manual, which is a great magazine/book art directed by Jez Burrows. The whole magazine is limited to black and the blue spot colour.

Three beautiful, illustrated hardbound books a year, each holding six articles and six personal lessons that use the maturing of the discipline of web design as a starting point for deeper explorations of our work and who we are as designers.
The Manual captures the voices of our profession, both the well-known and the quietly working, as they bring clarity to the why of web design, share their visions, break our hearts, stretch our minds, and move us to deeper, smarter, richer work.
Each issue is an A5 (~6 × 8”) hardback book with a textured, handcrafted feel, and a bit over 100 pages of 120gsm Munken Pure stock within. No markup, screenshots, or tutorials—we focus our lens elsewhere. Each issue has its own color, from the foil-stamped design on the cover and spine to the exceptional illustration paired with each article. Line up the full spectrum of these collectible artifacts on your shelf, beginning with the first issue

I am in very good company... the other illustrations featured are from Paul Blow, Jon McNaught, Dadu Shin, MIke Lemanski and Always With Honour
Here is the original drawing... this was a really fun thing to work on, thanks Jez:

  1. Hi,When websites are new, it is easy to jump from a zero to a one, or from a one to a two, but with each successive increment in Web Design Cochin it becomes much more difficult to climb the pagerank ladder. Thanks.....
