I enjoyed reading all the artist profiles and there take on things. Some of these artists were new to me so I enjoyed getting to know them. I liked the ending chapters which talked about being authentic with your art. I did expect a little bit more though. The projects in the book were very basic. I would have liked to see some advanced work. There were some good suggestions that I would like to try but I guess I was looking for more detailed ideas.

I know I will revisit this book often.

Good stuff but not quite what I was looking for.
