As this book is on sketches, don't expect anything polished, although some of the details are intricately rendered with pencils. There are concept designs on fashion, creatures, insect ladies (no typo here), sea creature ladies (no typo here as well), toy designs and other sketches.
The theme throughout has a heavy focus on surrealism and fantasy.
The pencil sketching style might not appeal to everyone. I personally prefer pen and ink sketches more.
(More pictures are available on my blog. Just visit my Amazon profile for the link.)
The interior is entirely expertly rendered pencil line drawings. If I were to nitpick anything, I'd simply like to see more.
He was right. This book is amazing, though maybe too short. The description isn't kidding - you'll find things like chickens crossed with ballerinas or cats crossed with bagpipes. But you'll also find more normal looking people with unique fashions. Toy lines that would make your children cry. Etc. Unique sketches that deserve a look or two. Heck they deserve to be called something better than sketches as I think of sketches as something more like silly doodles I do.
