Illustoria #10: Color
In this issue, we explore the weird and fascinating world of color. Where did color come from? Some say New Jersey, and some say outer space. No matter what your opinion, Issue #10 explores how we see color and how we use color. Featuring a cacophonous cover by renowned children’s book illustrator JooHee Yoon, DIY watercolor travel palette instructions, perspectives from National Park Service rangers, everything one needs to know about the technicolor mantis shrimp, and much more.
