"Like love in that well-known ballad by Wet Wet Wet, drawing is all around us... One of the most comforting elements of the book is the inclusion of artists who are using traditional drawing tools, in many cases pencil and paper, but who are creating something that has the capacity to surprise... Drawing requires a leap of the imagination."—Elephant
