Book Review

The Sketchbook of Loish

This review should be of no surprise to anyone, given my love for Loish’s artwork (I was part of the kickstarter for the first book, ended up buying a PS4 and Horizon Zero Dawn because she was part of the concept art team, and now I was also part of the second book Kickstarter).


The Sketchbook of Loish: Art in progress by Lois van Baarle & 3dTotal

I sadly couldn’t afford a high tier reward, but I was pleased with all the lovely extras it came with. You can see a pack of cards, a bookmark, a colouring book (which is full of gorgeous artwork and the pages are only printed on one side so you don’t ruin the drawing on the opposite side when you choose to colour with something that may transfer to the other side of the page) and some stickers, which I am trying to decide where to stick them and can’t make up my mind.

This is less of a guide book than her first book and more of a collection of her artworks, sketches and how she has worked her way through art. I still loved the details and to see half finished pieces (it feels like you’re getting an insight into the brain of Loish). And I could gush about her artwork for ages, but I will try to be good and not go crazy about it.

If you like artwork, then I highly recommend you check her out and her books too.
