    Sergio Martinez illustration method

    Here's an article I wanted to share from an old illustration magazine, Step by Step Graphics I came across. The artist is Sergio Martinez and he walks through his method for one of his Pinnochio illustrations. Enjoy.

    Sadly, Step By Step is no longer published, but you can still find old issues. They used to have a back section like this that showed illustrators of the past and their techniques. Check eBay maybe.

    Sadly, Step By Step is no longer published, or I think it's now called Step Inside, but it's not the same mag. They used to have a back section like this that showed illustrators of the past and their techniques. It was great. I believe I have a few buried in the closet somewhere. Check eBay maybe.

    This is a neat article. I want to try out that wax crayon wash technique.

    Dan, thanx for posting these scans. It would be great if Mainloop or someone else who might have old issues of Step by Step graphics could upload demos of other artists as well.
    Speaking of which, I was told that Mark English's demo was also published in an old issue of SBSG (don't know which), and wouzld be particularly grateful for any info on his or Bernie Fuchs' (or Daniel Schwartz's).
    I live in Croatia, Europe and past issues of SBSG are not available here, so if there's someone who might wish to get rid (that is - sell) of old issues of that mag (or some other with similar concept) please contact me on
    studio@valentinoradman.com

    Btw, is there any mag for practicing illustrators worth subscribing to?
    I've heard that Communication Arts is not bad, though I've never browsed it.

    (I have just learned that one-year subscription (eight issues) on C.A. is $110. Not the cheapest one, though

    Communication Arts is ok sometimes. HOW, GraphicArts Monthly, PRINT, and a couple others I can't think of at the moment. They tend to offer a mixed bag for my interests, though, so I don't subscribe to any of them. Mostly print design and package design stuff. There's a magazine called Illustration that has some interesting articles on old-school artists, mostly biographical rather than how-to. I'll see if I still have any copies of StepByStep around.

    Jesus Christ, the more I am exposed to the various ways in which work can be done, the more I understand that given enough dedication, any method can become a tool through which the imagined can be conceived for others to see, truly inspirational stuff.
