ImagineFX, the best art magazine around, gave Ink Bloom 4 out of 5 stars. Here's what they had to say.
"We first heard of the idea for a narrative-led tutorial art book about two years ago, and we're pleased to say that it's been worth the wait. This one tells the story of Hachi, a half-Japanese, half-Chinese teen living in 50's America. After getting a tattoo, she's thrown into a world of weird creatures and sci-fi adventures, with Jim and Chris taking it in turn to reconstruct important scenes.
Although this book is aimed at traditionalists, intermediate digital artists will find plenty in it to inspire them. The combined pulling power of an epic story and detailed art instruction provides a unique, engrossing title."
I couldn't have put it better myself.
