Steinie Land

I have always admired Illustrators work and felt their work was always degraded by Fine Art.
Online I found an old "Creative Illustration" book by Andrew Loomis for $60.00. Usually this book sells for over $100.00. Loomis wrote this book for other Illustrators and it's contents is extensive. Since it is no longer published Artist snap this book up when they can. You can get the PDF version for free online.

Muchos Gracias Roberto.

If I could go back in time and hit 18 year old me in the head with a book, it would be this one.
I would also say "Forget Fine Arts, go for Illustration, you idiot!"

Nice! That would be the most awesome yard in town here. Grass will grow but not like that.

That looks a lot like the mix in my shade garden.
Not quite as lush here yet -the hosta are just starting to unfurl.
Grass is growing like mad tho Finis, you could cut twice a week.
