Hip-hop is more than baggy jeans and explicit song lyrics. It’s a cultural force that influences everything we see and everything we hear. Now two masters of hip-hop have joined forces to create one remarkable book: How to Draw Hip-Hop. Damion Scott, a noted hip-hop artist, and Kris Ex, an internationally recognized music journalist, explain drawing basics and construction of the hip-hop look; ways to capture the style and spirit of the B-boy and B-girl; and how to draw hip-hop gear, environments, characters, and graffiti. Every artist and aspiring artist, every fan of hip-hop and pop culture in general needs a copy of How to Draw Hip-Hop.
