In each issue, a group of illustrators is asked to respond to a theme, the first being ‘Introductions’; and what better way to introduce these talented artists than through their very own awesome illustrations?
The title Fade Away and Illustrate is inspired by Blondie, one of Mezaina’s all-time favourite bands, and their song “Fade Away and Radiate.”
