Publisher Comments:

Arguably the first standard textbook of its kind, Exploring Illustration presents a curriculum methodology to learning illustration. Written in a friendly, conversational style with input from experienced instructors, this introductory-level book offers a "gallery" of representative approaches to illustration. Fundamental concepts, techniques, styles, and mechanics are highlighted in an approachable compare-and-contrast format, with functional, step-by-step visuals that enhance understanding. The result is an eclectic cross-section of the real world of illustration that is an innovative introduction for students and young professionals alike.

Book News Annotation:

Fleishman (commercial art, Edison Community College, Piqua, Ohio) has 30 years of experience in the graphic design industry. Writing for illustration students and young professionals, he opens with chapters on theoretical aspects of illustration, including idea generation; the fundamental building blocks—concept and composition, value, color, line, pattern, texture; subject matter; and the links of history, culture and taste, cross-cultural and ethnic references. Six additional chapters explore the practical aspects of the use of various media. Illustrated in b&w and color.
