Drawing Blood: Forty Five Years of Scarfe by Gerald Scarfe
a brilliant book if you like his work.bulging with his illustrations,it's a big, beautiful book which I keep nearby as a regular source of inspiration when producing illustrative work with pen and ink.If you like Scarfe, Ralph Steadman is great also.
The Art of Drew Struzan by Drew Struzan
The Art of Drew Struzan by Drew Struzan
this is the type of work that is unfortunately disappearing in the field of poster art, in favour of "art" that is produced digitally, faster and more cheaply. Drew Struzan is an amazing craftsman and artist, whose work has inspired and persuaded millions to love so many films.There are a few other books which contain more of his work, but this one is a worthy one to have, as it contains preparatory drawings for all of the poster art contained inside.
Revenge of the Sith (Art of Star Wars: Episode III&hellip by J. W. Rinzler
this book is full of fantastic artwork from the film.I couldn't recommend it highly enough, if you can get hold of a copy that stays together.perhaps the hardback is a better option, unfortunately within a month, every page in my copy came loose, so its difficult to use it for reference as a concept designer/illustrator.
