About the Author:

Founded in 1937, and now part of Ten Speed Press, Watson-Guptill has a storied legacy of publishing influential illustrated art books. They seek out respected authorities who instruct and inspire artists in a wide range of art and craft. Their list covers both fine art and practical art instruction in traditional disciplines such as drawing, painting, sculpture, and printmaking, with standout authors like Juliette Aristides of the Atelier series and Rudy De Reyna, author of How to Draw What You See. They also publish modern books focused on artistic pursuits such as craft, collage, mixed media, comics, sequential art, cartooning, manga, and animation, written by such authorities as Burne Hogarth, Stan Lee, Brian Michael Bendis, Camilla D'Errico, and Chris Hart. Watson-Guptill books are found on the shelves of both amateur and professional artists around the world.
