What’s different about this book than, say, the Strokes of Genius series? Take a look at what editor Rachel Rubin Wolf has to say:

While I was judging Strokes of Genius 6 I began to feel that I was selecting portraits way more than any other subject. As I went through the entries, I kept seeing terrific portrait work. At first I thought it would all even out in the end, but it didn’t. Eventually, I stopped and divided the work I had moved to my “Yes” file into separate fi les for each genre. Indeed, I was right! I had perhaps three or more times as many portraits than any other genre, and I was not even finished looking at all of the entries.

When all was said and done, I had way more portrait and figure drawings than I could fit into
Strokes 6. But they were too good to just send to the “No” file. So I asked North Light if we could publish these additional portraits and figures in some other way-and you are looking at the result!

I put together a bunch of questions that the art itself raised in my mind-things I was curious about-and I am pleased as punch with the interesting and varied answers we got

In Art Journey Portraits and Figures you will find:

  • 100 inspiring portrait and figure drawings by contemporary artists in charcoal, pencil, pastel, colored pencil, pen + ink and more
  • Commentary from each artist on why the subject is special
  • The techniques and processes each artist used to achieve his or her style
  • Why each piece is a significant work and what sets it apart from other paintings he or she has created
  • What inspires each artist to create, or how he or she expresses that creative spark
