Mighty Inspiration: Link List

We all know about Drawn.ca but talking to some people students around school I've found that a lot of students illustration sites knowledge ends there.

So, my plan is to try and build a bigger illustration link list for those out there. A mix of sites that feature illustrators as well as illustrations, design/designers, and just good sites for those in the illustration field. Here's the catch: I don't want to just list out a huge list and have everyone copy it without anyone adding to it; the whole point of the mighty wall is to build a community and grow together. So, I will post 5 sites I know then leave the comments open for anyone to post up any sites they know. If we can get a decent list going I will keep on posting up more of my own links and together we can all build up a great list of sites to look at.

http://www.illustrophile.com/: almost daily features on illustrators. It's worth noting that illustrophile seems to love Sheridan illustrators and as of posting this 2 of the newest 3 posts are about Sheridan grads.

http://www.creativereview.co.uk/crblog/ UK based blog that talks about various inspiring things in Europe right now. I find sites like this invaluable as their crappy commercials they've seen a million times are completely new to us.

http://thedailycrosshatch.com/: Comics news blog that focuses more on indie comics/comic creators and what is happening in the current indie comic industry.

http://art.blogging.la/ LA based blog with some reviews and previews about galleries and shows in the LA area. It's interesting to see what's happening on the west coast. And a good source of ideas for east coast shows.

http://linesandcolors.com/: It's basically the same idea as Drawn.ca but different articles and features. If you like Drawn then this is a good complementary site.

Ok, now it's your turn.
