A lot of the books I write about are written for mixed-media artists and the like, but in addition to those yummy books I savor graphic design books too. This quote by George Kneller featured in the book Complete Digital Illustration: A Master Class in Image-Making is just so good I had to share it with you today:
"Creativity, it has been said,
consists largely of rearranging what we know
in order to find out what
we do not know."
If you like digital illustration and want a behind-the-scenes peek into the designers that create it, then I bet you will love this Rotovision book:
Complete Digital Illustration is an informative and practical guide to this in-demand area of design. Alongside step-by step tutorials, top image-makers from around the world provide real and practical advice on setting up a studio, creating a killer portfolio, and winning commissions.
The work featured in the book reflects the wide and exciting range of image-making practice that thrives today, from music and fashion to character and toy design. The book reveals the secrets of the industry's most successful creatives who transfer traditional illustrative skills into digital dimensions, producing the highest quality, most commercially successful animation, three-dimensional, and vector-based illustration.
This book offers a master class for students and professional designers and illustrators who want to take their work beyond the constraints of two-dimensions and gain greater commercial success. An inspirational, must-have guide, Complete Digital Illustration is also of real value for professional image-makers.
