Strolling past my bookshelf while thinking of what I might draw next, my eye caught a book that has been in my possession for a long time; Burne Hogarth’s Dynamic Anatomy. First introduced to me by my art teacher in my junior year of high school, it still remains a strong influence in my creativity. During the last two years of high school, visual anatomy was forced deep down into my collective. Repetition after repetition, learning the exact spelling of each muscle, bone, and ligament that would make a visible difference when moved. All curricula reference material was based off the illustrations in Hogarth’s book.
I removed the book from the shelf, opened it and flipped through the worn, used pages until I found a illustration of a hand that I wanted to draw.
