I just joined last night, but I've visited the site a few times looking it over. I'm curious to know if there are really any other artist's here. As an artist myself I know that I have a different way of looking a books than many readers that I know. Personally I'm very interested in the imagery of a scene. I don't like reading a book that doesn't seem to take place in a definable location. I know some people prefer to read just the facts, but for me I want to see exactly what the author is trying to show me. I have a hard time getting into a book where the characters are basically silhouettes floating in an ambiguous void. I tend to like the same kind of books that other artist find enjoyable.
