The Illustrator's Guidebook - now funding on Kickstarter!

So, you may remember 21 Draw, the artbook I was involved in last year which became the most funded art project ever on IndieGogo.

Well, the 21 Draw guys are back with The Illustrator's Guidebook, a staggering new book of in-depth tutorials from the world's best comic, game and animation artists, covering topics including anatomy, perspective, character design, composition and landscapes, to name a few.

The list of artists involved in this project is unbelievable, and I'm so proud to be among them, this really will be an unmissable book for any creator looking to learn and improve FAST!

The book only has three weeks left on Kickstarter, so GO HERE and order your copy before it's too late!

Oh, and stay tuned for an announcement tomorrow about an incredible, MASSIVE new kickstarter book I'm involved with, which has just launched!
