“Content was not what I expected with purchase. A good book if your looking to gain inspiration from other artists.” by Sandlewood
This was not what I expected when I purchased the book. It’s content contains inspirational information about each artist and their artwork. I was looking for an instructional informational book with new mixed media art techniques.
It’s a good book if your looking for inspiration from other well known artists.
“Art Yummalisciousness” by S. Fishburn
The Mixed-Media Artist by Seth Apter, a true Jack of All Mixed-Media Trades, a real Renaissance kinda guy, is a fantastic addition to your mixed-media book collection. It wasn’t enough for this artist/author to have a successful career as a psychologist; he had to up the ante by teaching wildly popular, SRO classes, making videos, and lastly but not leastly, going for the title of premiere gatherer and collater of art collaborators. And wow, did he ever up the ante for his second book as well! I’m blown away, from the glossy cover and streamlined design, to the congregation of talented contributing artists. Fascinating from start to finish — highly recommended.
