Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Used to be that illustrators were told how and what to draw, and they drew it, and that was that. Today, however, illustrators are the authority; they are the originators of the ideas and the images that convey those ideas, both in fiction and in nonfiction. They need to be educated, socially and culturally aware communicators, with knowledge, understanding, and insight. Illustration shows emerging and exploring illustrators how to approach a new project, the theoretical and intellectual processes involved, the value of research, and how to create a unique visual language. Definitions and philosophies of illustration are also featured, along with an historical overview. Straightforward yet inspiring, this book is a must-have for illustrators everywhere.
