Overview

In this witty and frank guide, 20 of today's top humorous illustrators talk about their work. They delve into such topics as: traditional and unconventional techniques, mediums and tools (from airbrush to toothbrush); the right way to get started in the business; where the money is; inspirations and influences; the ups and downs of illustrating for magazines, advertising, books, animation and other markets; and style... "slamitude" vs. subtlety. Preliminary doodles, rough sketches and colorful final art illustrate the artists' graphic wits, which range from sophisticated to offbeat to downright bizarre. This is work that "takes no prisoners, straddles no fences, and makes no excuses." These illustrators thrive on distorting, exaggerating or totally recreating reality. "With that kind of freedom," notes author/artist Bob Staake, "anything can happen - and often does." If you need proof, just look inside.
