    A lot of the essays in the front half of the book are hilariously out of date--a lot can change in a decade. This was published when professional illustration was turning towards digital art for the first time, so it's full of speculation about digital art that looks really bizarre in hindsight. That said, the 2nd half of the book is great as it offers a lot of exercises and syllabi of a variety of university courses. This section is really helpful and gives some good ideas for studying!

    This book is a compilation of articles written by practiced Illustrators writing about the trade, the education, and anything that comes to mind about Illustration. It's irritating to read in the beginning because the first few articles are about old Illustrators who are mad at the invention of the computer and its effect on the Illustration business. It also has a few articles about Illustrators who are angry that they can't draw exactly what they want when they're given a job. Go be a fine art This book is a compilation of articles written by practiced Illustrators writing about the trade, the education, and anything that comes to mind about Illustration.

It also has a few articles about Illustrators who are angry that they can't draw exactly what they want when they're given a job. Go be a fine artist if you can't handle a commission. The rest of the book is a must have for any illustrator. It contains many syllabuses of illustration teachers and several descriptions of projects assigned in art school. It makes for wonderful practice. This book also contains a quote that I will forever remember. "An artist needs art school as much as dumbo needed his magic feather."

    Kind of depressing. I took a continuing ed class in illustration at SVA one spring, and I got a lot of the same end-times sentiment from my professor there.
