I share a lot of my favorite things and talk about friends whose work I admire when I write my blog posts but I wanted to dedicate a special page for acknowledging them in greater detail. All of these books, movies, writers, tools of the trade and more help me be a better artist everyday. So, whether you're looking for specific inspiration or just a suggestion for a fresh new read, I think you'll enjoy these lists.
