I'm a big fan of Dan Gheno's articles on Anatomy and Drawing the Figure in your Drawing magazine issues. Would you please consider compiling a book of Dan's work that we could purchase. I would love to have a collection of his articles catalogued in a book. I teach Figure Drawing twice weekly at a small studio here in Northern California, and I often refer to his articles in your magazine.
Does anyone else agree with me?
Please continue publishing these wonderful and very informative articles.
Thanks for the suggestion. I love Dan's articles, too, and it's funny that you mentioned a book. We are currently in the process of creating a Drawing book, with a section on portrait drawing and several anatomy articles. Even though the book isn't all of Dan's articles, there are a few in there.
I don't know the exact date for its release, but it will be later this year and I'll be sure to mention it once it becomes available.
Here are a few of Dan's articles that we have put in the Drawing Blog:
"How to put it all together"
"How to draw Dynamic Heads"
"Values create Dramatic Drawings"
and I've marked the tag here to find other references to Dan Gheno on the site.
Thanks for your reply.
I have downloaded all of the articles you suggested, previously. Thanks for the suggestion. I really love Dan's work, and also, Jon De Martin's articles from the Drawing magazine. I would like to see Jon's articles also included in a "Drawing" book. I have been following Jon's articles for the last 6 or 7 issues. I have found that they are very helpful to students that are beginning figure drawing, and also, for those of us that are more advanced that would like to improve our work.
I appreciate the Blog and the helpful posts that are here.
Great! I'm glad you're finding the articles helpful and interesting. Jon De Martin's work is excellent, I agree.
I'll be sure to pass along your suggestions to our book publishing group. And of course, I'll be interested to hear your thoughts on our Drawing book once it comes out later this year.
So good to hear that these resources are helpful to you and your students. Thank you for the suggestions!
