Illustrators, cartoonists, and animators listen up!

One of my all-time favorite books has just arrived at the D&Q store: Mark Simon’s FACIAL EXPRESSIONS. I’ve owned a copy of this book for a few years now and I still can’t get enough of it. The premise of the book is quite simple: it offers over three thousand photographs of people expressing a large variety of facial expressions (from giggling and listening intently, to bewilderment and hysterical laughing). What makes this book so awesome is the fact that the models are photographed in a variety of angles, making it the perfect reference book for any artist. In addition to the great photographs, Simon also incorporates a section on sequential expressions and phonemes, which is sure to please all those working in animation.
