Strokes of Genius Art Competition Winners

Stop by the Strokes of Genius Winner’s Circle for a weekly dose of drawing inspiration! Each week we showcase a piece of art from a past Strokes of Genius book, along with the artist’s thoughts on the piece including their artistic process and creative inspiration. The Strokes of Genius: Best of Drawing series annually celebrates creative drawing by publishing 140 diverse artworks in charcoal, pencil, pastel, ink and more in a beautiful art book worthy any coffee table.
