I liked this book because it shows the sketchy side of his work and the complete look. I got a better understanding of how he draws and I'm constantly referencing his art in my own. It is affordable and I think a great book for any artist to own.
For $6 I didn't know what to expect. But this thin helping of some of John's work is a nice preview into his beautiful drawings. Great for references although I wish they showed more finished works rather than some quick ones.
