SUMMARY- This isn't a "How To" book, but an artist's showcase - and you get a ton of really talented artists with a couple of examples of their work shown as they answer questions. I've put the artists' names in alphabetical order below in case you are looking to see if an artist you enjoy is in this book. Please pardon the vertical scrolling, but I think lists are much easier to read vertical than horizontal:
