I’ve been busy trying to wrap up a deadline this week and have had to take care of some family stuff. But here are a couple art related things I dug up this week.
Roger Scruton on Beauty – British philosopher Roger Scruton has written and given lectures on the idea of beauty and how it’s been marginalized in the art world, archeteture, and in a lot of the pop culture we consume. This is a short 2-minute video but you can find a lot more by him on YouTube.
The MAD art of caricature – Someone on instagram asked about resources for caricatures. I’m not that great at caricatures, but I do follow MAD artist Tom Richmond’s blog and his book on caricatures has going into its sixth printing. I haven’t read it, but given Tom’s skill, I’m planning on checking it out myself.
Disney Ladies – Some interesting images of behind the scenes sketches from older Disney animated films.
