Boxume's Profile Picture

United Kingdom
Maker of things, friend of corgis.
Take it easy and be good to people.
This is a list of things that I have found useful and or beneficial to my development as an artist, creative, and sometimes as a person, through building a visual library or creating and reinforcing principles. This is not a list of recommendations and I am not telling you the reader that these things are guaranteed to make you 'git gud' at "art". This is merely a list of things that I have at a time, enjoyed or found in some small way delightful as aides to my growth. Similarly, do not assume that because I haven't included something that I am dismissing it.
The list is subject to change and I may add or subtract things as I feel necessary to do so.
