I subscribe to a lot of magazines and I'm constantly at the newsstand looking through anything that catches my eye. I wind up with stacks of them at my apartment and I have to make time to read them. I do read them, but I buy them because I'm looking for something. Reference.
I look at every newspaper and periodical from OK Magazine to USA Today clipping photos. Hey, there's a shot of a sinking oil rig! I'll put that in my files! Hey, there's a photo of an overturned truck! I think I'm getting nutty with reference stuff. When I draw, I want my work to look authentic, so I have to dig up that Space Shuttle ref.
So I guess I have to keep buying magazines. And keep drawing. And keep reading!
