What I’m Reading Right Now…

books1

Books, books and more books – I can’t seem to get enough! I wanted to share with you some of my recent and current reads/listens:

  • Making Ideas Happen by Scott Belsky (audiobook):  Such a great book and it’s one that I have to listen to again, because it’s that good.
  • On Writing by Stephen King (audiobook):  I listened to this book ages ago and just recently started to listen to it again.  Though the book is primarily about writing, I’m sure that I can use his tips and suggestions for my art/drawing practice.
  • This Year I Will… by M.J. Ryan (audiobook):  Currently listening to this one right now… Sometimes I just need that extra motivation, so this one seems like a good listen so far.
  • Ed Emberley’s Drawing Book of Faces by Ed Emberley:  I have been using the Emberley books for my drawing practice and this one is on my “next to practice” list.
  • Steal Like an Artist by Austin Kleon:  I heard about this book via my friend Nicole (I usually end up buying whatever Nicole recommends because she always finds the best books).  Anyway, still reading this one, but learning a lot already.  For example, he suggests making your own “art family tree”… a little hard to explain, so you’ll have to get the book.
