About The Book

Concept

Every time I looked at art showcase annual or compilation books I wondered, how did the artists do it?  What were the steps taken to achieve such high quality work?

Page after page of amazing work, yet there was no insight as to how it was done.  I created Vision Illustrated from my desire as an illustrator to have a book that would show me the creative process behind these masterpieces.

Vision Illustrated prides itself on being different. This is not a “how to book”, it’s a visual showcase that serves as an extension of each artist.  The result is a unique art compilation book that promises to be an annual publication featuring the creative process for the best in fantastic fantasy, sci-fi, comic, concept art and a multitude of other art genres.

As an illustrator I have a passion for the arts and I want to make sure that I represent and promote these artists with the best book possible while offering something extra for the reader as compared to other art showcase annual and compilation books.     – Hugo Bravo
