About the Author
Alex Hillkurtz was born in England and grew up in California, where he works as a renowned storyboard artist for feature films, television, and commercials. His film credits include Argo, Almost Famous, It’s Complicated, Vanilla Sky, and many others. He uses the language of cinema to inform his images, moving beyond what one sees, and depicting what he wants others to see.
Alex has taught sketching, plein air, and watercolor workshops in Germany, Russia, Italy, the Netherlands, France, the UK, and the US. He has exhibited his work at L'Entrée des Artistes in Paris, Matite en Viaggio in Venice, and MiArs in Milan. He believes that in our too-crowded lives, sketching and plein air painting invite us to move at a more deliberate pace to discover a true sense of place, and in the process, unexpected stories are revealed. Alex currently lives in Paris with his film editor wife, Tiffany, and enjoys discovering the hidden corners of the city that sketching and plein air painting allow.

There are useful tips and techniques for composition, perspective, still life, landscapes, architecture, figures, and watercolor. In other words, all the essentials.
Because of the above reasons, I really enjoyed this book. I wish each chapter was longer with more material though. As it is, this is a small volume with about 73 pages.
Great for learning urban sketching, either for the beginner or the sketcher who wants to enhance their art.
After reading this book, I hurried to follow the author on social media!
