I'll probably be adding some more items to this page in time, but these are some of the sites I most recommend to students and friends. I also have some specific art supply links in the Art Supplies section of the store.

Dwight Harmon Memorial Site

The auction is over, but there is a nice site up on Art Center's server that has some of Dwight's work and photos. You can also go here to buy a print that puts money into dwight's scholarship fund.

earth.google.com

A 3D interface of the Earth. Simply the coolest software I've seen in years. It gets even cooler when you start playing with the options.

Asteroid Impact Estimator

Have you ever wanted to know what a 2 mile diameter, iron-core asteroid, traveling at 5 kilometers a second, would do to Los Angeles? Here's your chance to find out. (Now if we could only combine this applet with earth.google.com...)

Children's Book Council

The best (unbiased AND free) resource I know of for aspiring creators of children's books. Look for the downloadable PDF files for publisher contact information, etc.

The Artchive

A really wonderful online art archive. A great resource!

Bud Plant Illustrated Books

If money is tight, I immediately throw away the catalog so as not to be tempted. A lot of fun art books lie within!

Marley's Ghost

Some friends of mine have a band named Marley's Ghost. Incredible guys, incredible musicians. Try to seem them live if you get the chance. Watch for their Fall 2005 CD sporting some original Robert Crumb cover art!

Craig Mullins_______Erik Tiemens

Two very skillful artists who graduated about a year or two ahead of me at Art Center. What I really like about their work (and what I like to show students) is that, "yes, they are incredible digital painters", but when you look at their traditional work, all the same skills are evident. They're good painters PERIOD. It's not about what tool you use! It's how you use your tools!

Inkjetart.com

Where I get all my printing and ink supplies. Why bother linking to them? I've found if I need to know ANYTHING about inkjet printing, paper, or ink---they know the answer. Good prices too!
