Biographies of artists?



  • A while back I asked for suggestions for reading that was illustration themed and ended up getting “The Art of Pixar,” “The Illusion of Life,” (about Disney), “Ink and Paint: The Women of Disney’s Animation,” and “Words and Pictures,” about Quentin Blake. These were all great books and thanks for those who recommended them. The latest episode of Three Point Perspective (“A Day in the Life of an Illustrator” made me think it would be interesting to read more biographies of artists - not just illustrators but any artists, though illustrators and watercolorists would be my preference. Any that you can recommend?



  • I think everybody should read "My Adventures as an Illustrator" by Norman Rockwell
