Radical Illustrators was a one-off issue of Illustrators Magazine No. 38 edited by George Snow and Robert Mason and published by the Association of Illustrators in England in 1981. This groundbreaking issue of Illustrators Magazine captured a moment in the art of illustration when young reactionary illustrators were rejecting the straightforward narrative approaches of the popular mainstream press and breaking new ground with radically new visual styles that have long since become the norm in illustration.
Contributors to Radical Illustrators included Edward Bell, Sue Coe, Georgeanne Deen, Catherine Denvir, Terry Dowling, Blair Drawson, Robert Ellis, Carolyn Gowdy, Anne Howeson, Rod Judkins, Andrzej Klimowski, Stewart Mackinnon, Robert Mason, Shinro Ohtake, Ian Pollock, Liz Pyle, Brothers Quay, Sol Robbins, Christine Roche, George Snow and Jake Tilson.
