The Figure in Ink

Tomorrow my drawing students will work with their first life model. They will also work with ink.

I LOVE figurative art, and I LOVE ink. Here are some of my favorite contemporary artists working with the human figure in inks. Raymond Pettibone; Kara Walker, Shazia Sikander; Elizabeth Peyton; Fang Lijung; and the forever inimitable Kerry James Marshall. Enjoy!
