4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By yaz134@hotmail.com on 11 Sept. 2001
Format: Paperback
Designers and advertisers launch a relentless tirade of ideas aimed to attract our attention. Pen and mouse is a compilation of illustrators' works of varying style, including a mini-interview in e-mail-style format, and a passport-sized self portrait of each artist, all of which form easily-read, entertaining dialogues. Rather than an analytical approach, text is minimal -and thus subliminal- to allow the reader to draw their own conclusions, as the drawings speak for themselves. The book seems as though viewed for the first time everytime it is picked up and in this way, reflects vibrancy in keeping with its artistic intentions. It's almost like a glorious magazine - recommended, especially for inspirational purposes and an insight into media culture.

Format: Paperback
This book showcases an eclectic compilation of some the most talent illustrators in the world today who use digital processes in creating their work. There is a brief interview with each featured illustrator focussing mainly on their process, which is followed by a small collection of their favourite work. If a criticism could be made it would be that maybe the focus is on featuring many illustrators rather than a comprehensive look at a few, but that besides this book is a joy to look at and shows a diverse range of styles. A definite must for illustration fans and contemporary illustrators. Inspirational.

Still One of My Favorites 6 Jan. 2009
By Jared England - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I've owned this book for awhile and have multiple copies. This books is always fun to look through and it always helps jog the brain and give me some idea when I am looking for a little inspiration. It has a really diverse sampling of styles that a lot of design books lack. As a designer who enjoys employing digital techniques in conjunction with more traditional ones this book really hits a home run.

Illustrative!! 2 Aug. 2001
By mr george h mcknight - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
After reading a review in one of my favourite monthlys I rushed to purchase a well researched and produced piece of graphic literature. A beautiful composition ranging from traditional media(paints, crayons...) to 3dimensional pieces of computer based work. Well worth my hard earned cash.

This book is the tops. All of the artists in this book are great. The content is great as well, it gives a short bio and general information on each artist as well as a list of what they use to design. Great book, please buy it.
