About Showcase 100
Showcase 100 is a juried exhibition and publication of 100 illustrations from some of the best professional illustrators working in the industry today. The project strives to showcase a wide variety of artworks that represent the trends and quirks of the creative market during the year leading up to the exhibition. It will encompass illustrations created for all markets, in any country, and by artists who may be 30 year veterans of the industry or just starting out in their careers. We want SC100 to be a celebration of everything we love about illustration and the people who create it!
Once the submissions have been received, all artwork will be judged blind by our panel on each piece’s individual merits to ensure the selection process is completely fair. Our judges are all involved in the industry as illustrators, art directors, designers and promotors, and have many years of experience behind them. All of the work selected for the final 100 will be printed and framed for the exhibition, to be held in central London, and included in the accompanying publication.
Running Showcase 100 for the members of hire an illustrator is The Little Chimp Society. With three big international art projects and exhibitions under it’s belt, the LCS is well-placed to manage an event that we are sure will prove to be a great success! SC100 will become a regular feature of the hire an illustrator calendar as we plan to hold the event every two years. We’re really excited about starting this journey and expect it to go from strength to strength!
The Showcase 100 exhibition will be held from 7th – 12th April 2015 at The Framer’s Gallery in central London. This is an excellent art space in the heart of the Fitzrovia area and is easy to get to by train, tube and bus.
The final 100 artworks will be on display and available to purchase at the show, as will the accompanying book.
