Great news! 3x3 Magazine is back, but you’ll only find it if you subscribe or purchase individual issues.

A lot of the features are the same, but there are some exciting additions that make each issue not only a collector’s item but also an informational tool for illustrators at all levels. As always, we feature three individual illustrators from across the globe with in-depth interviews, a collection of their finest work along with comments from art directors they’ve worked with and a peek inside their studio. A total of fifty-four pages of images and text for our profiled illustrators.

We’re reprising our CareerTalk section along with a new News & Views page, our usual OpArt, Twenty Questions and our popular industry Icon feature. We’re also looking back at important trendsetters from the ‘60s and ‘70s in our new Legend feature. And in our added Seen & Noted section we’re selecting eighteen pages of interesting images that have caught our eye in print, online or from promotions we’ve received.

You have an option of either print or digital subscriptions. The digital subscription includes a standard pdf along with a page-flip version that imitates our actual magazine on your screen.
