This was animation veteran Jamie Kezlarian Bolio's copy, warmly inscribed by the author: "To my long time great friend Jamie! / Karl"

This follow-up to Karl's Spirit of the Pose is an all-new collection of over 700 life drawings by this longtime drawing instructor, however this volume includes a full chapter of instruction: "A Study in Active Anatomy," and other instructive text sprinkled throughout the book.

About Karl Gnass:

"There are few draftsmen today who have the ability and knowledge to draw the the human figure with such directness and strength."
- GLENN VILPPU, Master Draftsman

"The drawings of Karl Gnass are an example of the art of acting as it applies to drawing."
- HARRY CARMEAN, Figurative Painter

"He has drawn for so long and with such ferocity and has mastered the discipline of drawing to such an extent that his grasp of the pictorial language allows him to balance on the brink of chaos."
- JAN SAETHER, Fine Artist/Professor Emeritus
