I don’t profess to be some psychic who can predict what’s next in the often unstable world of art and design. Most of my favorite illustrators enjoy a modest success (which is actually the equivalent of being world famous, in the world of illustration), though one or two attain genuine fame of a sort. Maira Kalman was my childhood hero, for example. So here are 15 illustrators/artists who I have my eye on. Their work is varied and impressive, especially with the millions of derivative illustrators out there. Check them out!

Is that 15? I didn’t even count.
Let’s all pay respect.
