Art 113A:Intermediate
Animation / Illustration


All of these supply lists are here only as a convenience to my students. By NO means am I requesting or suggesting that students purchase their supplies from DickBlick.com through this site. If you choose to, wonderful, as the referral fees help to pay for this website, but mainly, I posted this page and these links so that my students could reference the EXACT item I'm recommending for class.

I do personally use DickBlick.com to order the majority of my art supplies and have found them to be the most responsive, inexpensive, and helpful vendor for my supplies. The few times I've received an incorrect order, or an order with missing items, they have corrected it quickly with no questions asked. So I do give them my "seal of approval".

Things to Keep in Mind

Regardless of where you purchase your supplies, a few things to remember:

Pay very close attention to the terminology. Bristol Board is not the same thing as Illustration Board, and if you purchase "Hot Press" instead of "Cold Press" you'll be making another purchase shortly.

As a general rule, buy the best materials you can afford. Except for the crudest use, there is no such thing as a "bargain brush" or "good, cheap pigments". You get what you pay for. While a good artist can work with any materials, good materials make everything easier, and will allow a student to improve more quickly, because less time is spent struggling with the materials.

Buy different brushes for different mediums! NEVER use a watercolor brush for anything other than watercolor, and vice-versa. (In my studio I have three jars of brushes in descending order of quality: my watercolor brushes (also used for Gouache), my oil painting brushes, and my acrylic brushes. (where all the old decrepit brushes eventually end up.)
