“I have read a LOT of drawing / cartooning / illustration books over the years, and I must say that Tom’s book is right up there with the best of them. This book exudes quality: The front and back covers are thick and glossy while the interior paper stock is bright and makes the colors and text pop out of the page. There is a wealth of terrific information to be had here, folks. This book is a goldmine for cartoonists and illustrators.”
