When you mentioned "Illustration" in Iran, more often than not people associate it with Childrens Books. Many of the
illustrators there are active in this area, perhaps because it's easier for them to express themselves through Childrens stories, considering the fact that public art shows are severely restricted by content in Iran.
One illustrator that seems to follow the same trend is Arghavan Khosravi. I came across her profile on DeviantArt the other day and enjoyed her fun and whimsical illustrations. Most of her art seems to be hand-painted in the traditional way, which is more of a rarity these days considering all the digital art out there. Check out her gallery.
