Drawing is probably the oldest art form in existence. Today, it is not only a basic means of communication and idea development among artists and designers, but still an fine art form in its own right. Like painting and photography, it can be an expressive and personal, communicative and provocative, colorful and varied.

Many artists suffer for their art, but few actually risk life and limb. Since 2003, SVA alumnus Steve Mumford (MFA 1994 Fine Arts) has made several trips to Iraq and Afghanistan to capture the war-torn regions through his paintings and drawings. The August issue of Harper’s Magazine features a dozen of Mumford’s paintings, which were created during his time embedded with the 3/6 U.S. Marines in Marjah, Helmand Province, in 2010 and with the 2/3 Marines in Nawa, Helmand Province, in 2011. Mumford recently spoke to the Briefs via email about the risks and rewards of his work.
