When my best friend JB lived in Warrensburg MO I went to visit him. His room mate Matt, a pretty cool guy and fellow artist had a coffee table art book called "The Art of Modern Rock". Just 400+ pages of rock posters and fliers collected over the years. As well as interviews with the artists and profiles.
Just an amazing book. The most motivational book I have ever held. 10 minutes looking at it and you want to draw or paint or create, just get something out there.
After months of desperately wanting it I finally broke and picked it up for my studio.
I can't say enough about how inspirational this book is. You can get it at bookstores or online at
