About 3x3 Magazine

3x3 is the only magazine devoted entirely to the art of contemporary illustration. Published in the United States and distributed worldwide, we are interested in what’s shaping international illustration.

Our Mission is to preserve, protect and promote illustration in all its forms. First we want to preserve today’s illustration by producing printed forms of communication to enable future generations to get a glance at what illustrators were doing during this time period. In this digital age it is too easy to lose track of an individual’s work, to search through past archives looking for information about an artist or project is time-consuming. With 3x3 the information is on your bookshelf, letting you update your knowledge of a particular artist on the web. The two work hand-in-hand to provide a record of achievement.

Secondly we want to protect the legacy of the top illustrators in the field. Our interest is in helping the best illustrators advance their careers and to that end we offer portfolio reviews, webinars, conferences and affordable books to help the next generation of illustrators learn from the experiences of the current generation.

Lastly, we want to promote in every way possible the importance, viability and uniqueness of using illustration in advertising, publishing, corporate, institutional, books and animation. Our juried shows and subsequent printed magazines and annuals help accomplish this goal. If you love illustration then you will want to receive issues of our award-winning magazine, subscriptions are available in both print and digital formats. You’ll also find us on the newsstands of leading bookstores throughout the US and Canada as well as Europe and Asia.
