Overview

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.
