From the publisher:
THE BEST OF DRAW!, VOLUME ONE compiles material from the first and second sold-out issues of DRAW!, the "How-To" magazine on comics and cartooning! Presented here are a wealth of tutorials by, and interviews with, the top professionals in the industry! Featured are demonstrations by: DAVE GIBBONS (layout and drawing on the computer), BRET BLEVINS (drawing lovely women, painting from life, and creating figures that "feel"), JERRY ORDWAY (detailing his working methods), KLAUS JANSON and RICARDO VILLAGRAN (inking techniques), GENNDY TARTAKOVSKY (on animation and Samurai Jack), STEVE CONLEY (creating web comics and cartoons), PHIL HESTER and ANDE PARKS (penciling and inking), and more! Each artist presents their work step-by-step, so you can see it progress to finished form, learning valuable tips and tricks along the way. Whether you missed DRAW! #1 and #2 when they were first released, or just want to see how the pros do it, you'll learn from the best, as editor MIKE MANLEY assembles this wealth of information for both beginning and experienced artists!
