Twice in April? This is what happens after a book-buying ban, I go overboard. Shortly after returning from my travels in Pennsylvania I received 2 coupons in the mail from Barnes & Noble. I was so elated that I ran to the store the very next day. I grabbed so many books that I didn’t know which ones to get so I had to sit in the café and weed them out. I whittled down my pile to these:
ImagineFx Sketchbooks: Volume One
Since I already have Volume 2, I found it hard to pass up purchasing Volume 1. I bought Volume 2 on a whim last year at B&N. I was in the store and wasn’t searching for anything in particular and when I saw a magazine featuring artists’ sketchbooks, I had to buy it. At the time I was upset that I couldn’t find Volume 1. But now I have it! I can’t wait to start reading! What I love about these magazines is that they present commentary from the artists alongside their sketches so you get some insight about what the artist was thinking while he sketched and why he chose that image or style and much more!
