I like to draw when I have the time. I'm not all that good at it, but it's a relaxing and enjoyable hobby. So with that disclaimer, let me say that this book gave me a decent overview of a variety of illustration techniques along with useful examples of how the art is produced from start to finish. The book is nicely designed and there are photos and illustrations on every page along with informative text. I found it curious that all of the excellent example work was by European illustrators -- but when I came upon the copyright page in the back of the book, it notes that this title was originally published in Spain. The material it covers is probably too elementary for professional or formally-schooled artists, but for beginners and amateurs it's an easy-to-read compendium of techniques that will stimulate your creative juices.

I love Parramon's artbook series and immediately buy another one for my library whenever they're available on the internet.

If you are an illustrator or artist in search of fresh ideas, this is NOT the book for you. It's uber basic and not very informative. Blah.
