Art often focuses on the final product, regularly overlooking the long journey it takes for an artist to get there. Behind the scenes, there is everything from process refinement and project redirection, months wrestling with self-doubt and the occasional crumpled print in a wastebasket. For me, my recent efforts have started to turn to research, in an effort to ensure the series I put together is as well-informed as possible. My evening entertainment has shifted focus toward WWII documentaries while my often "light" summer reading has become second-hand accounts of the terrors of war. Hershey's "Hiroshima" was eye-opening in many ways and, at times, was so vivid that it became a difficult (yet important) read. I've started compiling a list of articles, books and documentaries to watch so that my work is as balanced as possible, but I would love for the community to suggest resources. Are there any suggestions out there?
