Manga Art by Mark Crilley

Image
"Manga Art" by Mark Crilley is a book of the artists inspiration and techniques for his art.  As a beginner artist I have always enjoyed learning and understanding a professional artists inspirations, also their techniques.  I may never be at the same skill as the author but I was really encouraged by his writing of how he did was inspired on his work.  Also it was nice to see him write about how after he finished a piece he realized the character should have a tattoo so he added it digitally (which he said was rare for him).  This was such a beautiful and informative book, I highly recommend it for anyone that is interested Manga art.

I was given this book from Blogging For Books for free and was not required to give a positive review.

The Divide by Jolina Petersheim

"The Divide" By Jolina Petersheim is not your typical Amish romance fiction it is about Leora Ebersole trying to figure out how to survive mental, physically and emotional after an EMP bomb destroyed the power grids.  Survival is the main focus of the book and Leora having to decide between a young Amish man she grew up with and a man she only met due to the crisis happening.  This was an interesting story even though it was book two in the story you can get away with not reading book one.  However book one was just as good as this book with a great story that did rely on the romance section of it.  When you get dystopian style books you almost never see ones that involve the Amish and that is what makes this book very special. I highly recommend this book.

Portrait Revolution by Julia L. Kay

"Portrait Revolution" by Julia L. Kay is a book about portraits that are done from all over the world and in different mediums of art.  This book was such a beautiful and interesting collection of portraits.  They are not just portraits in painting style but in needlework, abstract style, digital printing, and other mediums.  I especially loved the ones that are in different mediums like the abstracts and the ones of babies.  What more can I say as this is such a beautiful book that shares the portraits and the artists.  This is a great book for any art lover and I highly recommend it.
