So long Pixelsurgeon

Pixelsurgeon is being closed down, as the founders can no longer devote the necessary time to keep it viable.

So to all who sailed in her/it - many thanks and good luck!

20th century illustration

David Apatoff is obviously someone with a great wealth of knowledge about illustration in the previous century. Luckily he has gifting an awful lot of that knowledge to us through his blog. It has been picked up as one of Blogger's 'Blogs of Note' and is undoubtedly enjoying a peak in traffic.
