ABOVE: Dasha Shishkin, "I Don't Want Any Problems, None What So Ever" (2007).

The act of drawing has long been considered the foundation of an artistic education, and the life class essential to the formation of an artist's style and technique. Yet in the contemporary art world, drawing is increasingly regarded as a medium in its own right, and the figure as a subject for ongoing exploration well beyond the sketchbook. Drawing People—the publication—is a thoughtful and beautifully illustrated survey of the most compelling and inventive drawings of the human form being produced today by seventy contemporary artists from around the world.
