    I just stumbled on a book called age of innocence the romantic art of jeffery jones signed and in mint condition at a used antique bookstore I never heard about this artist so I read a few pages and wow inspiration left and right hit me so I decided to grab all of my old books I dont read anymore and traded it in for the book a good fucking deal

    another good art book is blade of the immortal by hiroaki sumura and the skillful huntsman by mike yamada

    did a quick search and didn't find this, so....

    Banksy: Wall and Peice

    What are some of the art  books that have inspired you or helped your work?

    at best it is inspiring; at its worst, subversive. or is it the other way around? not sure.

    David Chelsea's book is a MUST for anyone who's having trouble with perspective in general. It goes into full detail and makes perspective very easy to understand especially if you enjoy the way Scott McCloud explains his stuff in his books since David uses his comic book style method of explaining things:

    This book was also a huge help to me. Found it at my local library and it's amazing how much anatomical material this book covers. For instance, things like hands, feet, arms and torsos all have their own chapter. It's a pretty thick book, but it's definitely worth hunting down if you're looking for an all-in-one reference for human anatomy:

    Ernest Pignon

    Hello guys,
    I joined CA some 20 minutes ago :-) just discovering the features here.
    on my youtube channel I have some book browse through videos and hopefully I will make some more, as books are one of my treasures.
    Here's one video about a French artist which I like a lot, Ernest Pignon

    Just got a shipment from Hong Kong with 2 books of Kent Williams art -- his latest Opthalm and something called Goya View Series vol 1.

    Name:  Opthalm.jpg
Views: 2047
Size:  420.0 KB

    Name:  goya.jpg
Views: 2001
Size:  38.9 KB

    Trust me, unless you've seen it in person, you've never seen his work presented so beautifully!! These are both huge books - 12" x 12", with astonishing printing quality.

    Opthalm contains sketchbook work and his big paintings, while the Goya series is like a peek directly into his personal sketchbook - there's a good deal of overlap in the 2 books but also several excellent works in each not found in the other. The Goya book being paperback, I'm thinking of ordering another copy so I can separate one to put prints up on the walls.
