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!
