The Norman Rockwell Museum in Stockbridge, MA, provides this educational website on the art of illustration presented in five broad categories: history, artists, genres, essays, and resources. The main page of the website provides a quick jump into the essays section, which features a rotating selection of featured essays. Currently featured titles include "Producing Album Cover Art for Clients in the Music Business," and "Hanna-Barbera: The Architects of Saturday Morning," to name a few. The artists section has short biographies and examples of work of over 150 artists, including many well-known book illustrators (Arthur Rackham or N.C. Wyeth) and a wide variety of artists such as Jack Kirby (who created many Marvel superheroes, from Avengers to X-Men), Andy Warhol, and Roz Chast. The breadth of artists included in this website is reflected in the genre section. Here, visitors can browse by type of illustration, including advertising, cartooning, comics, and tattoos. In the resources section, visitors will find artist interviews (some on video), links to schools for those interested in pursuing a career in illustration, and professional associations for illustrators.
