Author(s): Jonathan Raimes
A visual celebration of onscreen creativity, encompassing everything from the imaginative manipulation of basic lines, shapes, textures, and colours, to artistic statements that utilize Photoshop, Illustrator, and Painter's realistic pens, pencils, brushes, markers, and other tools. This book is aimed at both beginners and accomplished artists.
Jonathan Raimes began his career in the early '70s, creating original works of art under the direction of celebrated artists including Peter Blake, Bridget Riley and David Hockney. After working for a number of years as a freelance graphic artist, he co-founded Foundation Graphics, a multi-discipline studio working on all aspects of visual communication. Originally a traditional artist working in acrylic and oil, a keen interest in computers since the early '80s has led to traditional media being virtually abandoned in favour of the 'digital canvas'.
