This beautiful art showcase book from Adobe Press features 30 established and emerging Illustrator artists, their masterful work, and tutorials demonstrating their techniques for using Adobe Illustrator. Curated by one of Adobe's and the Illustrator community's premiere Illustrator mavens, Sharon Milne, this book features an inspiring collection of innovative Illustrator artists and their amazing artwork. The illustrations represent a mix of techniques and styles and are field-defining works that demonstrate technical excellence and awe-inspiring aesthetics. Readers will also appreciate the artists commentary about their inspiration and philosophy about their art. In addition to the art showcase, this book includes several tutorial projects that teach techniques for working in Illustrator. The how-to content, comprising 25 to 30 percent of the book, is based on general Illustrator features, so this book can be useful for users of recent and future versions of the Illustrator software.

4.0 out of 5 stars It's inspiring alright 22 Jun 2013
By April - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I'm familiar with vector work but not to the point of what some of these artist can do. It's great to look at the images.

However, if you're thinking that this book is gonna give detailed tutorials then you're out of luck. The tutorials are great but not for beginners and some are not clear. And only some of the artist give tutorials not all (which is understandable).

3.0 out of 5 stars Annoying and repetitive 30 Nov 2013
By D. Klecan - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
There are so few books for Illustrator users (compared to Photoshop) that I purchase every book that is released. My expectations are always so high. However, I've had this book for a while and I really want to like it, but every time I open it it irritates me more and more. Yes, the images are wonderful, yes, the the artists are inspiring, but much of the work is repetitive. I feel like I am looking at the portfolios of a group of fellow graduate students. It seems like they were all given the same assignments throughout their art school years. Two styles abound in this book: 1. Dark, swirly fantasy, fairy tale-based look (pages 48, 66, 68, 93, 155 and 101). or 2. Flat, shadowless comic/cartoon look based on manga and/or swedish folk art (pages 188, 174, 170, 164, 147, 144, 139, 50, and 23).

Ironically Milne's work/tutorial of a cat is the only unique piece in this entire volume. The images I would have liked to have had as tutorials are featured on the cover page, the boy and the puppy in a soft pink landscape, a piece that looks very un-Illustrator and the owl using negative space pattern for it's tummy.

Tutorials. I am an advanced Illustrator user and I had a hard time following the tutorials. Hey, Adobe Press, did anyone "beta-test" them? I read the tutorial on page 38 several times and I still don't follow the opacities and "cut-ins" Are they written in the artist native tongue, then translated?

I have to give "5 stars" to the artist Makarova on page 5. I loved the wedding dress' cloud texture. I emailed her asking how she did it and she was kind enough to not only send me the instructions but also a small piece of the file so I could follow her instructions. If everyone in this book was as forthcoming as Makarova, this book would have received a 5 star!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Overall: It's Worth It!! Great Collection of Artists and Tutorials 9 Jan 2013
By Ashley Benson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I am very pleased with the result, and glad I pre-ordered 3 copies! I've received the product and it looks great. This book includes tutorials from a few of the artists featured and I can't wait to dive into some of them. They make really great gifts for art enthusiasts. I just gave a relative a copy, and she's now proudly displaying it on her coffee table as a conversation starter.

I hope there will be more books like this in the future...sign me up for the first copy please!
