This book features a bookplate signed by Simz
This enchanting artbook is the first published collection from Italian illustrator and comic-book artist, Simone Ferriero, better known as Simz to his online community. Inside The Art of Simz, readers will discover the digital artist’s much-loved witches and their spectral cat companions as they continue to mix the modern day with magical fantasy. Starting with an in-depth look at his creative journey, Simz shares how he found his creative feet, his experience in education, his leap of faith into working as a freelance illustrator, and his professional milestones to date. Simz also discusses the challenges he’s faced along the way, and offers advice to those seeking to pursue a successful career in the art industry. This spellbinding book boasts two large galleries; one containing a behind-the-scenes timeline of his sketchbook pieces, and another that focuses on his Etsy-shopping, selfie-taking, online-dating witches and everybody’s favourites – the ghost cats. The following chapters cover everything about his creative process, including his tools, workspace, and his sought-after watercolour-inspired techniques, while also shedding light on how to conjure a unique artistic style. There’s even a brand-new tutorial that offers readers a chance to follow along and improve their own skills. The Art of Simz is a bewitching addition to any bookshelf or coffee table, and will be sure to charm artists, art-lovers, and existing fans alike.
