Product Description

About the Author

BURNE HOGARTH (1911 1996), hailed as the Michaelangelo of the comic strip, was one of the most iconic cartoonists and influential arts educators of the twentieth century and remains so today. After attending the Chicago Art Institute and Academy of Fine Arts at the age of fifteen, Hogarth began an illustrious career in arts education, fine arts, illustration, advertising, and comics, and became recognized as one of the earliest creators of the graphic novel. Best known for his innovative illustrations of the syndicated Sunday "Tarzan," Hogarth broke fresh ground in the newspaper comic strip by combining classicism, expressionism, and narrative in a powerful, new way. As cofounder of the School of Visual Arts one of the world s leading art schools he brought his unique approach to art into the classroom. His passionate lectures on anatomy and art history formed the foundation for "The Burne Hogarth"(r)"Dynamic Drawing Series" that continues to teach and influence artists and animators worldwide. Hogarth s art has been exhibited in many important galleries around the world including the Louvre in the Musee des Arts Decoratifs and Marseilles Bibliotheque. He traveled the world throughout his life receiving numerous international awards and accolades."

Format: Paperback
Burne Hogarth has an incredible talent for subverting realistic creases and compression wrinkles into his art. Readers will no doubt be satisfied with his 144 page book, explaining in heavy detail the laws and physics of 'dynamic wrinkles and drapery'. He does however, tend to go into intense description on every single page without pause; at times it can be difficult to follow what Hogarth is trying to teach. All in all, this is a well thought out book, wonderfully illustrated (there is at least one fully detailed drawing per page) and with a someonewhat anal attention to detail.

I really hate to give a negative slant to any review, or to damn-with-faint-praise, especially when the author is an acknowledged expert in his field. However, the style of presentation of the subject matter is that of a children's comic with much less visual or intellectual impact than the Dandy or Beano. The text is almost an irrelevance and imparts hardly any information to the reader.
When compared to 'Drawing Drapery from Head to Toe' by Cliff Young this runs a very poor second even given that Young's book is a slim 48 pages, it is certainly not to be mentioned in the same breath as any of the excellent works by Andrew Loomis now available as wonderful quality reprints.

Perhaps I'm being a trifle unfair to Mr Hogarth, after all the book's contents are not bad, but that is how it seems to me.

As the father of the Tarzan character and art, and the co-founder of the School of Visual Arts with silas rhodes, Burne Hogarth is far qualified to teach the fundamentals of great figure drawing. His Drawing Series of Books should be on the shelves of any aspiring comic artist.

A nice introduction into how to draw wrinkles and drapery in clothes.

The text seems somewhat out of kilter with the illustrations, which often contain more helpful information, such as arrows showing the way folds fall and stretch.

Hogarth is no doubt an excellent artist, but perhaps not such a good author.

The illustrations although superb are very dated.

A great book to teach you about the physics of the fabrics, very logic explanations and good examples. Many different situations to teach you the basics so you can extrapolate to every environment. A must if you want to improve the fabrics of your universe ^w^
