Hi, do you have recommendations on artist books? For illustrators?
Anon, it honestly depends on your taste and what you’re looking for. Personally, I am a slut for artbooks, but that includes fine art, animation, graphic, fashion, literally anything. Everything that is art-related, I want.
That being said, I can give you a list of books that I own or have read that do have something to do with illustration. Not just artbooks or artist books, but any books. But you must keep in mind that these are books I like for various reasons and whether they would help you for anything, I have no idea, but they are all amazing books and I wholeheartedly recommend you get your hands on them if you can. So…
Theory / research / learning books:

We spend a lot of time in our garden and at home while getting used to be parents. Me drawing common things around our home during short intervals of quiet moments. #garden #sketch in my #moleskine #sketchbook
