First up is Kris Anka; His site sockdrawer is a treasure trove of interesting images of his art stylings as well as a learning resource for budding artist (like myself). It's also a nexus to all the other sites Kris Anka blogs on. So what are you waiting for hit the link, check it out!
After visiting the site I found this gem among Kris Anka's many blogs. Design Lessons is a great resource. It was a blog he designed for a few friends from school so the tone of some slides may seem a bit gruff but the information is outstanding. A link to this blog will also be in the Resource Links Art Tab. Thanks DC for putting us on to this amazing artist. I would also like to thank Kris for letting use one of his images for the post banner.
Update Sept. 8, 2012:
Kris has just brought back his Art tumblr page. Very cool stuff.
