The fall issue of Drawing is hot off the presses, and as usual it’s loaded with artistic advice and inspiration. The issue focuses on the human body, with inspiring figure drawings from both Old Masters and a wide variety of contemporary artists. Other articles focus on choosing the write paper, drawing ellipses, and the role of artists in World War II.
