Illustrophile, a blog "for lovers of illustration and commercial art" that started last August. It features mostly artists and designers that are currently working.

I enjoyed the illustrations featured here, particularly Charles Harper. I bought his bird book the other day at the V & A Museum in London and find it very inspiring and a great read. I also think Flora Chang is an amazing illustrator.
