Lüerzer’s Archive knows how to pick them. Michael Morgenstern was named in one of their recent issues as one of the “200 Best Digital Artists Worldwide,” and for good reason! You won’t see Michael tooting his own horn, however, because he’s too busy working on a multitude of projects.
With more than 17 years in the illustration biz, he’s been steadily churning out images that draw you in and make you think. A regular contributor for the weekly “Banyan” column in the prestigious The Economist magazine publication, the following images were created for several features covering Asian politics. Long on creative freedom, but short on lead time, Michael works quickly often fleshing out his ideas digitally. He can often be seen mightily wielding a digital stylus while comping out multiple illustrations at the same time. Now that is talent!
