“Creative Illustration” is considered Loomis’ magnum opus, which was aimed primarily at the professional-level illustrator. Divided into seven sections – Line, Tone, Color, Telling the Story, Creating Ideas, Fields of Illustration, and Experimenting and Studies – this book is filled with instructions, tips, insider experiences and incredible illustrations.
During his career as one of America’s most sought-after illustrators, Andrew Loomis (1889-1959) taught at the American Academy of Art in Chicago. In 1939, he codified his lessons in his first manual, “Fun with a Pencil.” He followed up over the next two decades with a series of even more successful how-to books that remain the gold standard for artists to this day.
