This is a list of books, websites, vendors, materials and other resources that have proved useful or interesting to me over the years. I’ve tried to embedded links to items in this section when a source is mentioned in the topic material. Some of these books are no longer in print but since they provided a sometimes unidentifiable part of my development as an artist, I list them here (even if the citation is imprecise) as a way to assign credit.
