The Work/Life Series from UPPERCASE

When the first edition of Work/Life was published back in 2008, UPPERCASE was a fledgling publishing house. In 2009, our eponymous quarterly magazine was born, growing into a celebrated publication with readers around the world. In 2011, the second edition of Work/Life was released and featured 100 international illustrators. It was met with much enthusiasm, not only from art and illustration buyers who appreciated the book's quality content and curated talent, but also from other illustrators and aspiring artists who were inspired by the stories shared within. Our participants' careers have benefited from the book, garnering awards for their submissions and coveted assignments from their dream clients. The Work/Life series has developed into something even greater than a promotional publication—these books are educational, inspirational and beautiful; books that have value beyond just a directory of talent.

All three Work/Life books.

All three Work/Life books.

THEME: AN ILLUSTRATED LIFE

Unlike awards annuals or traditional illustration directories, our publication gets personal. Artists are individually interviewed about their creative focus and artistic technique as well as your inspirations and aspirations. Additional imagery (sketchbook pages, studio shots, inspirational objects or personally illustrated anecdotes) are integral to each participant’s spread, allowing the reader to take a peek into their work/life. 

With the third edition, we are pushing the personal nature of Work/Life to a new level. This edition's theme is "An Illustrated Life" in which we explore the ups and downs of illustration and what it takes to stay creative. Each participant will offer their unique take on this theme. Each participant has created a bespoke illustration assignment specific to their interests and story.
