  •  Illustrator James McMullan, renowned for his posters for Lincoln Center, editorial work for New York Magazine and Rolling Stone, and six acclaimed children’s books co-authored with his wife, Kate McMullan, is now publishing his most intimate and daring monograph to date.

    Emerging from decades of teaching drawing at the School of Visual Arts in New York, and sittings in his studio, Hello World: The Body Speaks in the Drawings of Men showcases McMullan’s unparalleled ability to depict the beauty of the male physical form, through keen lines and vibrant, yet inquisitive brushstrokes. Using gouache and a bristle brush, McMullan explores not just the drama and rhythm of bodies in motion, but the excitement and fraught psychological complexity between subject and portraitist.

    For the last five decades, James McMullan has been regarded as one of America’s preeminent illustrators. He has created more than 80 posters for Lincoln Center, his drawings of Brooklyn’s nightlife inspired the creation of Saturday Night Fever, and has taught drawing for over 20 years at the School of Visual Arts in New York City. In the pages of Vanity Fair, he was described by Mark Rozzo as being “to modern- day New York what Toulouse-Lautrec was to 19th-century Paris.” He lives and works in New York City.
