4.0 out of 5 stars Good for 'proper' graphic students, 15 July 2010
This review is from: Digital Illustration: A Masterclass in Digital Image-Making (Paperback)
I have been using this book for reference for myself and for my graphic design students over the last academic year 2009/10. I found it very useful and so did my students. The title does indicate a DIGITAL slant, but any seasoned designer will realise that traditional methods combined with digital yield outstanding results. The computer is a tool and good for compiling a combination of digital and other methods (when photographed or scanned in). There are too many blogs and books that forget that an educated designer will find the best way forward (including perhaps the most cost effective) to produce a design outcome. This isn't always digital. If you are obsessed by photoshop and think (wrongly) that being a designer is about digital only, don't buy it. And don't become one of my students either, because I teach and produce good graphic designers, not Photoshop Mac Monkeys with no design or commercial sense. And I think you mean 'you're' not 'your'.

Hello P.A. Ferguson,

I was just looking at some other book reviews and for some random reason I have ended up back here at an old review I gave on a book, and in all honesty have been quite astonished at YOUR reply. As an educator I would have thought you would have a little more decorum than just simply insulting people. I genuinely hope I never have the mis-pleasure of being taught in one of YOUR classes. You sound like a very conceited and egotistical person to the point where it makes you feel better about yourself to make pathetic comments on a simple spelling mistake (well done if you know the difference between YOUR and YOU'RE, congratulations my learned friend) and to even call someone a photoshop mac monkey; how amazingly self-important you must feel, most people (clearly not you) would just call that arrogance. If you don't like someone else's 'opinion' on a book I'm afraid YOU'RE just going to have to grow-up and and learn to deal with the fact that not everybody likes the same things as you. People have different opinions, didn't your mother teach you that? "I teach and produce good graphic designers" - how incredibly pompous. Get a life.
