Looking at arty books and magazines

My  endless, passion/addiction for  design/illustration/ photography books wont stop! even though I always feel that this might be the last one, then  unconsciously I end up buying yet another one for my collection. I probably don’t even have that many pairs of heels, or bags of whatever things a girl ‘should’ have, but If I see an inspiring art book in easons or a charity shop I take it home (if its not  friday and it’s my last money for a bottle of wine,of course ;) )  and same story with magazines, long ago I stopped buying all weekly  gossip magazines like star, and heat that have not much to offer apart from gossip, but magazines that I still pick up when I have spare cash always seem to be a choice between LOVE  , I-D , VICE , POP , to mention a few. They always appear to offer fresh, inventive content, that’s not based just around gossip ( guess I get enough of that on internet and twitter hehe) , but inspires and encourages creative thinking, and that’s always a plus! right?

Mano didele manija dizaino, fotografiju ir mados zunalam vis dideja. Kai tik turiu atliekamu pinigu, ir tai ne paskutiniai penktadienio vakaro vynui, labai didele tikimybe kad nusipirksiu viena is situ zurnalu.  LOVE  , I-D , VICE , POP, na cia tik keleta, kokius skaitot jus?

Just to end this post I wan’t to show you this book I found in the library a while a go called Face fashion, its basically a guide to drawing a fashion face just like the title says, but there is so much more to it! I couldn’t stop looking when I picked it up and even though I’m more into pattern, symbol, abstract illustrations I really do enjoy drawing people sometimes and I believe you can never learn enough, there is always something more you can improve on . So this book has so many different suggestions on how to draw even simple things like lips that you would think there is nothing to learn about it, and different make-up looks (that was my favourite spread). So yeah after looking at this book it’s definitely on my list and hopefully I will have it soon. I need to learn how to draw that perfect nose…hehe I can never get it to perfect. What’s your guilty book pleasures, could you add any other quirky/edgy art-fashion magazines to my must read list?

Nesenai bibliotekoje pamaciau sita knyga apie iliustracijas labai suzavejo, galbut todel kad pieshti zmogaus veida nera mano siprybe , zodziu reikia man isigyti shita knyga, nes be veido detaliu ten visokiu kitokiu gerybiu pilna! pvz kaip detaliai piesti plaukus ir t.t bet viskas taip stilizuotai ir tikrai be galo idomu pavartyti ahh o ja isigyti galima cia  –>  Face fashion .Kokias meno knygas megstate jus?

  1. Vasare, thank you so much for visiting me! your blog is beautiful and completely inspiring. i adore your graphics, illustrations and creative genius. blown away with the patterns you create and that darling box you made for your cards. good show lades!

    i can never get enough design type books or mags, thanks for sharing your passions about them and the sneak peek inside. wishing you a wondrous rest of the week!

  2. OH YEAH! this book is great, I didn’t get to really use it, but my professor let me borrow it to practice last summer, but I can barely draw a body let alone focus on the face. So I’ve been practicing the body first! but I too share this addiction to books.

    • Yeah this book is great for getting the face right, I loved that it showed different ways to draw hair as well , and how you could use textures to make it look more realistic! ahh great book:)
