Creative Books Worth Reading

Molly Bang explains in her book how pictures work. She uses cutout pieces of paper to explore the tale of Little Red Riding Hood. Using various cutout shapes she explores the various components that affect visual pictures. Large and small shapes, dark and light colors, and round and sharp edges. I recommend her book for the understanding
she explores in creating pictures.

Marcos Mateu-Mestre has twenty years of experience in feature animation. His visual statements are bold graphic images. I especially enjoy his black and white character designs. I strongly recommend his book. He offers his insight about frame composition, lighting, and visual continuity sequences in animation. You won't think about your visual images in the same way.
