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?
