Win a signed copy of 'Crumble, Crackle, Burn' texture illustration book!

Good news!

To link in with this month's Creative Tips & Resources article I've written for Ten Paces and Draw, we have something very special to give away...

This month's article is all about using textures and custom brushes in digital illustration.  It's got a ton of pearls of wisdom from some amazing illustrators I've spoken to such as Kali Ciesemier and Andrew Lyons. 

It's also got some very shiny pearls about using your own found textures from designer and author of 'Crumble, Crackle, Burn' Von Glitschka.

Crumble, Crackle... is a great anthology of a variety of illustrator's work, tips and insight into using real world textures in digital illustration.  It's full of lovely visual work paired with a black and white screen of the texture used in that illustration.
The book also comes with a disk brimming with royalty-free texture shots!

So...sound good?
