Frank Frazetta

Pretty much needs no introduction. I figured I should do a post with some images of his work especially considering his passing last Monday. I just found out today.Although I didn't study his work as closely as other artists have, I certainly can recognize his solid sense of composition and dramatic lighting. He was an artist who has been very influential for animators and illustrators alike.

Peter Brown

I LOVE this guy's work. He's a children's book illustrator who uses primarily acrylic/gouache. Here is an interview I read about him on a cool blog I'll post about next: http://blaine.org/sevenimpossiblethings/?p=1920

Female Illustrators

Here's another link my friend Wade sent me a long time ago. It's a blog dedicated to female illustrators.

James Gurney

My friend, Wade, sent me this link a while back. I had always meant to post it. There's some really nice information there about color and painting. Color is still one of those things that I feel I need to get a stronger understanding of. It's always inspiring to see an artist with a solid understanding of it.

University of California Berkeley Human Anatomy Lectures

It's been a while, but I'm still here. I found a link to anatomy lectures. I believe it's important to learn as much as we can about nature and life so that we can bring something tangible into the art we create.

Here's the link:
