A Voice for Illustration

Village Voice Creative Director Andrew Horton is a long-time advocate of illustration as a means of illuminating stories. Since his arrival at the Voice, the paper has a fresh new look, and is filled each week with work by many of the top artists working today. We are delighted that Andrew and his team have included our artists (Raul Arias, Taylor Callery, Sean McCabe and others) in this group for cover art as well as feature stories, reviews and interviews.  Here’s a look at some recent work:

 

Raul Arias

Raul illustrated this full page for a feature about New York’s biggest union aligning themselves with the state’s Republican party.

Sean also designed this collage for a review of Netflix’s hit show “Stranger Things”.
