For this week's post, I thought I would share links to various articles and links that I find interesting. I think as artist we need to constantly discover new things, read just about anything, listen to and touch the world around us. They are equally as important as our visual senses.

Here are a few sites/links to get you going.
Since I am on an oil painting and the human figure style kick as of late, look at the work of Kevin Wueste. He works traditionally and in Painter (which Is till need to dive into at some point).
Wimp is a great video site for things odd, creative, inspiring, thought provoking, and amazing.
For those of us old enough to actually used Letraset, Chartpak, and/or Formatt, you may enjoy this article.
If you are into old recordings, field recordings, and lost records of long ago, you must spend some time at Dust-To-Digital's website. They are rediscovering the gems from the early days of recording.
A fun site for those of us who like toys and art. Mostly modern art and toys but still a ton of information.
If you are into pinup art, spend some time at http://www.pinupcartoongirls.com/ The artwork on the site is very tastefully done. And this site has great reference for clothing from the 40s until today, http://www.glamourgirlsofthesilverscreen.com/menu/1/index.html
Paper Chase Press can print custom portfolios and books. I have seen some samples from then and the printing is top notch. http://www.paperchase.net/
If you are thinking about getting into character licensing, this site is a good start for legal information.
For those of use that do Flash animation and need a some additional training/knowledge, you must purchase Chris Georgenes and Justin Putney's new book, Animation with Scripting for Adobe Flash Professional CS3. i have just read the first 50 pages and learned a some new things. Chris has a Flash forum page that you can post questions or information that you may have regarding Flash and animation. http://keyframer.com/forum/index.php
Well since it is my anniversary today, I am shutting down early to spend time with most amazing person in the world. Lynn has been my biggest fan and supporter for my artwork. Without her there to push me, I would not be where I am today.
I will leave you with this quote for the week:
“I prefer drawing to talking. Drawing is faster, and leaves less room for lies.” Le Corbusier
