Illustrators Gift List

I am compiling a list of must have books for illustrators for the holidays. Any ideas? Feel free to add to this post:

I am starting with:

Color and Light: A Guide for the Realist Painter 

by James Gurney 


Imaginative Realism: How to Paint What Doesn't Exist

by James Gurney 


Understanding Comics: The Invisible Art 

by Scott McCloud


  1. "Caffeine for the Creative Mind" is perfect for those (like me) who get stuck in a rut from time to time. I'm actually working on some of these starting 12/1.

  2. Can't think of the authors off of the top of my head but
    Visualizing Muscles
    Setting Up Your Shots
    Perspective for Comic Book Artists

  3. Good suggestions! Are these all available on Amazon?

  4. That's where I got my copies but that was years ago so I'm not sure if they're still on there. If I don't get mine on Amazon I use Alibris.
