How to Airbrush Pinups book

The book I contributed an instructional article is now available at Wolfgang Publications and at Amazon.com
Check out the book with cover by Edward! (dats me!)

How to Airbrush Pinups is a collection of 7 instructional sequences done by well-known and experienced airbrush artists including Edward Reed, Steve Nunez, Susan Heidi, Liz Austin, and Tom Nguyen. Each photo sequence starts with the artist’s sketch, before moving, step-by-step, to the finished panel. The human form, the human face, and skin tones, are three topics that beginning artists struggle to get right. And it is these three topics that make up much of the discussion in this new book. Each chapter includes a Q&A with the artist. These interviews allow the reader to experience the artist, one-on-one. This is a chance to learn not only which airbrush the artist prefers, but also how they learned their skills, who inspires them and how to avoid the typical mistakes. The styles seen in How to Airbrush Pinups run the gamut from retro pinup and Vargas-style work of Edward Reed to modern stylized pinups of Tom Nguyen. Each artist adds his or her own spin to the classic female shape, and each explains in both words and photos how to create the allure that makes pin-up art one of the most popular art forms in the world.
