Adobe Master Class: Illustrator

Fri Dec 14, 2012, 12:22 AM
On the 27th December 2012, my book Adobe Master Class: Illustrator will be published! Published by Adobe Press/Peachpit... I'm so excited :D



Here's a description of the book:
This beautiful art showcase book from Adobe Press features 30 established and emerging Illustrator artists, their masterful work, and tutorials demonstrating their techniques for using Adobe Illustrator. Curated by one of Adobe's and the Illustrator community's premiere Illustrator mavens, Sharon Milne, this book features an inspiring collection of innovative Illustrator artists and their amazing artwork. The illustrations represent a mix of techniques and styles and are field-defining works that demonstrate technical excellence and awe-inspiring aesthetics. Readers will also appreciate the artists commentary about their inspiration and philosophy about their art. In addition to the art showcase, this book includes several tutorial projects that teach techniques for working in Illustrator. The how-to content, comprising 25 to 30 percent of the book, is based on general Illustrator features, so this book can be useful for users of recent and future versions of the Illustrator software.


All of the artists featured in the book are deviantART members! Over the coming weeks, I'll be creating some feature articles with some of the artwork showcased in the book. Not only that, there are 11 great tutorials showing you insight into their process!

Tutorials from the likes of: CrisVector, CQcat, Asher-Bee, j3concepts, ssst, LimKis and much more!

The book is available for pre-order and if you pre-order, use the coupon code ILLMASTER for a 40% discount! :woohoo:

Just got my copy today in the mail. Awesome job of spreading the love & attention around to your fellow DAs! I loved how many different artists had tutorials on there specific styles. It made the book not only beautiful to look flip through, but also very informative/educational. I can't wait to try out a few things! Great job!

I ordered mine from Amazon, which was a little bit cheaper, but also because I had a credit on there for $20...so I didn't end up paying much for it. There must be a fairly large waiting list though, because when I completed my order it said that it should arrive in February sometime...but that could also be because it's coming from the US to Australia, which takes an extra week or two. Whatever...I'm just excited to get it! I know I don't use Illustrator, but I reckon I'll still pick up some tips and tricks, and of course who wouldn't want a book written by you with all of those amazing artists included!!
:squee: Excited much? Yes. Yes I am!
