I have seen many art magazines on the news stand, and Computer Arts and Computer Arts Projects are easily the best available. Computer Arts tackles many different subjects in one issue while Computer Arts Projects looks at something specific. For example, they had an issue recently devoted to character design. They are produced out of the UK, so they are a rather expensive for a monthly magazine, but it is well worth it. Both magazines have tutorials and how-to arrticles. They have some of the best Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator designs to look at for those of us looking for inspiration. They profile a lot of designers and illustrators in both magazines. Computer Arts also looks at design issues, news in the industry, and reviews products. I know a lot of people like them because they provide a CD-Rom to try out the tutorials and look at new software. I will be getting a subscription to Computer Arts Projects soon, but I am always checking the news stand for both magazines when I get a chance.
