"Here's how I do it, and why"
This is the premise behind John Howe's first practical exploration of his artistic inspirations, approaches and techniques. This title will appeal to practical artists and fans of John Howe's work by providing step-by-step demonstrations, sketches and oustanding finished paintings, some designed specifically for this book. It covers a wide range of subjects essential to any aspiring fantasy artist, including materials and the creative process, and drawing and painting humans, beasts, landscapes and architecture. The final section of the book provides further inspiration and guidance on presenting work in various forms including film work, book covers and advertising, all areas John Howe has vast experience in. It includes a foreword written by groundbreaking film director, Terry Gilliam, with an Afterword by Alan Lee, the Oscar winning world-class illustrator.

John Howe was born in Vancouver, Canada in 1957. He attended the Ecole des Arts Decoratifs in Strasbourg. He has had three monographical titles published on his work, including Myth and Magic (Harper Collins, 2001), and worked extensively on the conceptual art for The Lord Of The Rings films with artist Alan Lee and director Peter Jackson.Review:
Filled with Howe's amazing and fantastical artwork. He knows what he's talking about when it comes to fantastic creatures and scenery. Knights, dragons, castles, and beasts of all shapes and sizes fill up these pages. It's a great read (with a forward by none other than Terry Gilliam) that will entertain, educate, and inform. -- Ain't It Cool News, October 17, 2007
