What are the hot art books and products this holiday season? Here are a couple of my ideas. Does anyone have anything else to add?
http://macabfilms.com/, but until then, this will have to suffice...
"For the first time an exhaustive look at the art and career of Walt Kelly; from his days at Disney working on such films as Snow White, Fantasia, and Dumbo
to his work for Dell comics. His brilliant Fairy Tale Parade and Animal
Comics, culminating with his creation of Albert and Pogo as a comic
book feature! This full color art book has it all!"
Pogo is probably one of the best cartoons ever, I definitely plan to check this out.
I loved this art book. No matter how you felt about Brave, this book has some amazing concept sketches and paintings.
Another animation art book, the Paranorman art book is amazing!
Not only concept art, but the armatures and sets are also discussed in depth.
I have been obsessed with keeping a sketchbook lately. This is a great resource to break the ice if you want to sketch more.
But wait, there's more!
"Jose Clemente Orozco, Diego Rivera, and David Alfaro Siqueiros. Now
legendary, these men have emerged as the most prominent figures of the
famed Mexican mural movement, which lasted from the '20s through the
early '70s and was hailed as the most significant achievement in public
art of the 20th century. The dramatic story of the movement is told here
in a fascinating history of the artists, accompanied by over 100
spectacular color reproductions of the murals"
Gift Certificate to Taos Sketch Journal Workshop by Amy Bogard:
This is a great week of soaking in the Taos, NM art scene and sketching. I would go again if I was not going to Italy in March.
