This beautifully designed book is not only an intricately narrated portfolio from one of the industry’s most celebrated and long serving artists, but also an essential book for all art, graphic and comic enthusiasts.
Reviews'Every page is so well designed and image rich - such a lovely book to get immersed in and so informative and interesting. The references really help to contextualise the artwork and development - gives the reader a greater understanding of [John’s], work and influences - as well as being very inspirational for any budding artists. Brilliant!'

'This book is loaded with John Higgins art. It’s rather interesting looking at his early material and seeing how much he has developed over his lifetime. A lot of the series he’s worked on is still available so makes this book a suitable taster as well for what you want to pick out. If you’re after art tips then the pointers here will serve you whether you’re amateur or pro. A worthwhile experience.'
'Packed with artwork, John H.'s narrative comes complete with professional tradecraft info of a high order, survival tips gained from hard-won experience and technical tips to many of his own techniques. A prolific comic illustrator in his own right, John has ranged across the genres and styles, often pushing the boundaries of taste, experimenting with pen, paint and technology.'
