5.0 out of 5 stars Solid practical advice, 23 Mar 2011

This review is from: The Fundamentals of Illustration (Paperback)
I was an Illustrator for a few years, drifted off into other work for many years and decided to return to the profession. Unfortunately, as you may know already, knowledgable, helpful, advice either in an Art School setting or out there in the world is thin on the ground. If you're in that position, then buy this book.

This book covers both the why, the aethetic, the how, technique, and most importantly if you're anywhere near having sorted the first two; how to market yourself. There is tons of practical advice on portfolios, presenting - and it's all delivered from a professional point of view and it rings true.

This is not a book for sunday painters. This is a book for the professional and the aspiring professional and I can't recommend it more highly. Oh, and if you're saying "yeah..." google me.

5.0 out of 5 stars informative read, 6 Oct 2007

As an new Illustration student I have found this book a brilliant reference. It is jam packed with interviews with illustrators from every field and work by these illustrators and many many more. It is full of useful legal tips, info on how to prepare a good portfolio and general background on illustration. Facinating for any illustrator studying.

5.0 out of 5 stars AMAZING BOOK, 27 Jan 2006
I read this from cover to cover, couldn't put it down. Packed with helpful information, fantastic full colour images (who wants to see an illustration or design book in black and white?), I would recommend this book to anyone interested in this kind of work - or indeed to those already in the illustration/design business!

4.0 out of 5 stars A useful book providing an overview of the basics., 22 Jun 2013
By 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I wanted a book that provided me with an overview of the illustration process as I am considering studying it as an option in my creative arts degree. It does provide a good understanding of the subject, and I also like the way that it is structured graphically - using box outs and diagrams which add interest and it is actually a very lovely book to look at. For me, as I am a very visual person, the pictures and structure really helps me to learn and keep me motivated. It gave me what I needed - an overview of the subject. However, if you already have studied illustration and are a professional I am not sure how much this book will offer you- hence 4 stars rather than 5.
