I just wrote a nice, long review for this and it vanished. Oh well! In a nutshell, I learned about "silk fusion" in this book, which is a cool technique and I found out about a few new artists but other than that, this book did not grab me. I did enjoy seeing both the sketchbooks and final projects, side-by-side, but for the most part, I liked the sketchbook pages way better than what the artist ended up creating! But that's my personal taste. Definitely check this book out for yourself!
