Drawing is the fundamental language of the illustrator. In its many forms and guises, it underpins the practice of illustration, whether or not the finished work appears ‘drawn’. In Drawing for Illustration, teacher, illustrator and writer Martin Salisbury elucidates key aspects of this vital discipline, moving from the basics of line, tone and composition to book illustration and graphic novels, advertising art and reportage.
Featuring more than twenty renowned illustrators on their creative processes, alongside a range of contemporary and historical sketchbooks and projects, this volume is an inspiring, authoritative companion for anyone seeking to develop a personal visual language.
