You will spend the first week studying, reflecting, and brainstorming. As you work the way through this blog, taking notes, and actively digressing to digest ideas and “think” in your sketchbook, also look at a book each day from the book shelf.  Pull them out and make notes, reflecting on the art and ideas. As you start to narrow in on your ideas, you will focus on more specific rather than random books.  You may even want to stop at Logos or go to library to browse.

Look at the ideas and advice here, as well.
