About

Justin R Martin is American author and artist. He is best known for founding an active community of creatives via his blog PoseReference.Tumblr.com. He continues to share his simplified poses online, inspiring tens of thousands of people to pick up a pencil or stylus and create new art. In his heart, he believes that helping to empower artists makes the world a better place.

"My poses simplify the human form in a way that can sometimes remove the inevitable anxiety that comes with drawing a person, and speed-up your art, over time, increasing your own understanding of human anatomy, proportions and movement."

"My intention is to share my simplified poses online and in print, so they might inspire everyone to pick up a pencil or stylus and create new art. I understand that sometimes, you just need a creative nudge to help get the pencil moving and break that pesky block. In my heart, I believe that helping to empower artists makes the world a better place."
