The Art of Hibbary explores the creative process and sketches of illustrator and freelance artist Hillary Luetkemeyer. Working from a widely varied background of artistic disciplines, and possessing a drive to continually explore new concepts, Hibbary has amassed an impressive body of work. Well-known for her beautiful and varied dragons and her heavy involvement with the online virtual pet site khimeros.com, her sketches and commentary illuminate both while also giving insight into her equally stunning works-in-progress. Along the way we are treated to insight into her preferred working materials, sources of inspiration and frustration, and thoughts on the difficulties of creating art as a business.
This installment of Artistic Visions includes 100 pages of dragons, khimeras and a wide variety of animal species both real and mythological. Hundreds of sketches and the artist's commentary lead you through the process she takes from concept to finished piece, and has something for everyone.
