Review: The Pen & Ink Book: Materials and Techniques for Today's Artist

User Review  - Darren - Goodreads

This is an indispensible resource for illustrators. I read this back in 2000 in Montreal. I was always too poor to buy it at the time, so I would go in everyday and read a few pages, then hit the sketchbook. I wish I could track down a copy now! Read full review
