I’ve written previously about a number of illustrators who are represented by Richard Solomon, a well known artists representative in New York whose list of represented artists reads like a who’s who of the top names in contemporary illustration.
In addition to the portfolios of represented artists on the Richard Solomon website (for which I’ll issue a Time-sink Warning), Solomon has in recent months been posting sketches from a number of the artists on a Tumblelog called Warm Up Sketches + Working Process.
These run the gamut from personal sketches and sketchbook pages to preliminary roughs for illustrations to relatively finished drawings. Though a few of the links from the index page are broken at the moment, there is more than enough wonderful material here to make a visit well worthwhile.
Many of the drawings and sketches are linked to the artist’s page on the Solomon website, or you can go in through the front of the site and look them up.
