Latest sketches + art books
Just a few sketches from the last week or so. I created these while listening to two art books on Audible.
The first book I've been listening to is The Art Thief by Noah Charney.
Each chapter seems to introduce a ceaseless new series of characters. At first, I found the book rather entertaining. However, I had to give up this novel after a couple of train wrecks in descriptive word choice.
Next, I chose Caveat Emptor: The Secret Life of an American Art Forger by Ken Perenyi. This story is true, and Ken Perenyi still paints and sells exquisite (and genuine) works in Florida.
This book is an interesting study in getting to know people who can have a major influence over your life and your career. I would love to visit Perenyi's gallery in St. Petersburg, Florida. To find out more about his work, check out the book or read this article from The New York Times.
