Jillian Tamaki is one of my favorite contemporary illustrators. I check her sketchblog almost everyday, hoping for some of her creativity and talent to rub off on me (to no avail). Her brushwork faithfully captures her subject's emotional state while giving the composition itself a sense of dynamism. Not only that, she has this amazing ability to tell a story within a single image. And her amazing storytelling powers extend beyond the realm of editorial illustration! In 2008, her graphic novel Skim won the coveted Ignatz Award for Best Graphic Novel. Here is a small sampling of her work:

More information on her novel Skim and other comic endeavors can be found on her portfolio site.
