Following the success of "Digital Illustration", "Secrets of Digital Illustration" continues Zeegen's exploration of digital image-making. It features exemplary portfolios and tips from luminaries around the world alongside step-by-step tutorials and working sketches. Most alluringly, "Secrets of Digital Illustration" also reveals, through example, that Holy Grail of creativity: how to balance commercial and self-authored projects, integrity with commercial success. Detailed tutorials from top illustrators in contemporary design explore different areas, from fashion to politics, ethical to promotional illustration, dissecting inspirational sources, methodologies, and professional best working practices.

This book is for people really on the cusp, if you're not there don't bother - get out of the kitchen.
If you're a student, if you're wanting to work in the industry.
GET THIS BOOK. (Especially if you've ever liked IdN or Computer Arts magazine).
Another book by the same author, which I recommend is the Fundamentals of Illustration. Again there is not
a lot of actual how-to [make an image] but its a complete exposition on what a freelance illustrator does, can do and should do when starting out.
What doesn't work for me is that the format is so heavy-handed that the featured works end up as ornaments to the author's own book design. Although there might be quite a lot of diversity here, it's eclipsed by large, bold serif numbers and by works packed onto pages like eggs into crates, but often with less care. The pieces look homogenous.
Don't look to the text to rescue the page design. The typeface is tiny, as if the author and editors agreed that readers should be discouraged from trying to parse nuggets such as, "Finding a method for combining the analogue and the digital while retaining a unique personal visual language is now top of the agenda for those embarking upon a creatively fruitful pathway."
Still, I wouldn't blame an author for a book's inapt title. Be warned, though, that the "master class" meanders between the unsourced (i.e., author's) banalities (see above) and platitudes documented by interviews. Again, if that works for you...
My hope was that this book would show a variety of artistic approaches. Unfortunately, what it shows instead is the author's illustration of illustrations: a long shadow that leaves readers in the dark about the topic.
