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®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 Museé des Arts Décoratifs and Marseilles’ Bibliothèque. He traveled the world throughout his life receiving numerous international awards and accolades.

Format: Paperback
This is an excellent *solutions manual* for the artist who draws human figures or includes fabrics in his or her drawings. If you already draw, and you want to create dynamic fabrics and clothing in your work, this book is for you. The study of wrinkles and drapery in this text very impressive, and was exactly what I was looking for.
***Note: If you don't already know how to draw, this book won't be of much help, as no drawing techniques are included to show you *how* to draw these wrinkles. Some basic drawing knowledge is needed, and assumed. Used with other drawing technique books, however, I think even the beginning art student could get some good theories, understanding and ideas out of this book.***
What makes clothing look natural and lively is how it flows and folds with the body when you sit, stand and move. This text explains how fabric flows with the body and naturally folds in a variety of different situations.
Chapters cover how the body moves and how its movement and positioning effect clothing.

I ordered this book along with "Drawing Dynamic Hands," also by Hogarth (it's excellent as well). I'd been doing mostly figure study, and it was time to make the jump to clothing. I realized I had no idea what a wrinkle looked like (you'd never guess that from my clothes!).
This is a really great book! It's always easier to practice using interpretations that have been filtered through the eyes of other artists. Hogarth's style is exaggerated, but this is exactly what makes this book a great learning tool and reference.
I do understand how someone could be put-off by this type of illustration, but I feel the principals shown in the book can be applied to other styles as well. I happen to like this style of illustration -- it's probably nostalgia on my part; I grew up reading comics illustrated by Burne Hogarth -- but I was worried that it was inadequate for learning fine-art. I find now that I was wrong about Hogarth as a teacher. His books have helped me improve my technique, without changing my style overmuch. His exaggerations illustrate and teach the concepts well, without requiring one to duplicate them.

10 of 10 people found the following review helpful By E.J. Barnes on August 26, 2003
Format: Paperback
You absolutely need a good background in human anatomy (i.e. the skeleton, muscles, and nude figure) before tackling this book. That said, I have not seen anyone else describe the rules of how fabric hangs, stretches, and crinkles on the stationary and moving human body (and on furniture). "Lines" on clothing I just thought of as a confusing and arbitrary muddle turn out to be much more systematic than I ever imagined.
He groups wrinkles by the forces exerted to produce them -- direct thrust, bend, crossing, compression (a subclass of crossing wrinkles), fragmentation, swag/hanging, trap/closure, flying, and passive/inert/lying wrinkles. I still don't understand the chapter on fragmentation wrinkles (hence only 4 stars), but all the other categories were clearly described and illustrated. He also notes the differences in wrinkles caused by different thicknesses or textures of fabric.
His examples are heavily influenced by his decades of professional experience in adventure comics (e.g. Tarzan) and period illustration, but the rules they reveal still apply. Fashions change, but how fabric behaves on the body is eternal. Essential.

Format: Paperback
Obviously, nothing can replace the old-fashioned method of going out and observing wrinkles as they appear in the real world. If that is your intention, this book can help tremendously by giving you a clue on what to look for as you're studying cloth. Also, this book is fantastic for teaching you how wrinkles appear if you'll be drawing from memory.
Topics include drawing compression wrinkles, crossing wrinkles, flying wrinkles, swag and hanging wrinkles, bend wrinkles, passive, inert, and lying wrinkles,... as well as a section on understanding kinetic forces which may prove to be the most helpful to you.
Also, the drawings are awesome and have given me a new-found respect for Brune. His "Light and Shade" book is also remarkable.

An excellent _technical_ treatise on how to draw drapery for all levels of artist. This book covers it all, detailing how every wrinkle type is formed and where it flows. A _must have_ for any serious artist.

Format: Paperback
I got this book about five years ago in an art store, and it's had a huge impact on my drawing. Making clothes respond naturally to a human body's shape and movement is one of the big challenges to artists, and this book gives tons of examples of different kinds of wrinkles caused by different movements and kinds of cloth. For example, compression wrinkles caused by stiff cloth which holds its shape and pipe organ drapery caused by heavy thick cloth such as a curtain. It's also very good for training your eye to notice things in real life, so that you can go beyond just the examples in the book. The illustrations are large and detailed and very clear. Even though the style's a little dated, the rules still apply. I'd recommend this to any aspiring artist.
