Anatomy By Jack Katz, Drawing the Human Form Vol. One


A 152 page sampling of the hundreds of detailed sketches Jack has done over the decades. Drawn in an effort to sharpen his sense of how the human form can appear in fluid and dynamic expressions, these sketches offer brief but detailed views of the human body. Advanced life art students can come away from this book with a unique perspective of drawing ideas that are both instructive and informative. Interspersed among the pages are small chunks of advice on art and drawing that Jack has offered to his students through the years.
