I read the book, The Third Gift by Linda Sue Park, and was baffled by illustrator Bagram Ibatoulline's artwork. The fascinating illustrations looked like he had combined watercolor with photography or oil painting, but the layered look or raised pictures of the human figures in the story made me wonder if he'd layered his artwork using Photoshop. And what had he used to border them? Graphite? Colored pencil? Argh... These questions really are about how digital technologies have changed the lan ...more

Three things drew me to this book: its deeply layered art, the addition of practical process description and my familiarity with the art of one of the artists (Dave McKean).

The book does not disappoint in any of these respects. The production quality is excellent. Photos of each artist's work are plentiful, large and crisp. The process descriptions include a product list and numbered reference photos. The author, whose own work is included in the book, demonstrates both practical experience and

Visually inspirational some of the reading made as much sense to me as "blahblahblah", if you know what I mean. It went in but the words often left no lasting impression. The wonderful photographs and basic info in the book makes it worth buying though.

The book was interesting and gave a brief overlook of art history and how mix-media/collage mediums developed. There are a lot of artists in this book that I'll be looking out for in the future. I wanted that it to be longer really. There were interviews where the artists were able to speak about their work (their process and goals)and there are even sections where they show their process in pictures. I wish the artists could have gone into more depth about art in general, perhaps in another boo ...more

Difficult book to read but lovely book to look at (except for the beginning few artists, who lean toward the grotesque and horror genre, definitely not my taste). The academic writing is off-putting, as well. I hope to actually enjoy the book the further I read but, so far, it's rocky going.

Interesting reviews of some historical significance. There were parts of this book that inspired me, in fact a lot parts. Occasionally there were sections that did not keep my attention, but that would be a matter of choice.

Lisa L. Cyr is an accomplished multidisciplinary artist and author with a content-driven approach. Her highly imaginative, fantasy-inspired works use layers of metaphor and allegory to stimulate curiosity, provoke thought and encourage further inspection. A poetic, rhythmic synthesis of drawing, painting, collage and assemblage, Cyr's visually tactile, mixed-media work is composed to collectively ...more
