Burne Hogarth started the School of Visual Arts in Manhattan. He also is known for a number of instructional books on drawing. I went to SVA for graduate school and I had a couple of his books so Hogarth's name was synonymous with education. I think, when I was at SVA, I knew that he drew the Tarzan newspaper comic strip for a while and his run was well-regarded. This King Arthur series is something that has shaken me to my core. These are incredible drawings. They are the most sublime drawings I've seen in a long time. I wish that these were the basis for Disney's The Sword in the Stone movie, rather than whatever it was they were thinking when they made that picture. These are shockingly beautiful. I am usually partial to drawing that is less about precision, but these drawings don't feel overly wrought, they feel bouncy and fresh, like they leapt from Hogarth's pen and brush. I'm in awe. I wish there were more than just this series.
