    I love this!

    This book holds a lot of eye candy. Your eyes will probably explode from how gorgeous this stuff is. I flipped through this book in store and couldn't get it off my mind and bought it as I was leaving. It's a great source of inspiration for getting outside of the computer and creating beautiful (yet graphic!) art by hand. There are also a few tutorials provided by some of the featured artists. They're basic but doable and inspiring.
