Over the last decade, Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) has become an international topic of conversation, knowing no ethnic or social barriers.

In DRAWING AUTISM, behaviour analyst and educator Jill Mullin has assembled a staggering array of work ranging from established artists like Gregory Blackstock and Jessica Park to the unknown but no less talented. Their creations, coupled with artist interviews, comprise a fascinating and compelling book that serves to educate and inspire anyone whose life has been affected by ASD. The introduction by bestselling author Temple Grandin provides an overview of autism and advocates nurturing the talents – artistic and otherwise – of autistic individuals.

Autism is known as a ‘spectrum disorder’ because no two diagnoses are exactly the same; however, there are characteristic traits of ASD. Using artwork created by individuals diagnosed with ASD, DRAWING AUTISM celebrates their artistry and self-expression while also serving as an accessible point of entry into understanding how ASD manifests in individuals. Through their art, the contributors exhibit unique perspectives on how they see the world and their places in it. The book’s seven chapters – Interaction, Individual and Societal; Repetition, Repetition, Repetition; Getting from Here to There; Bird’s Eye View; Another World; It’s All History; Art for Art’s Sake – speak directly to the core characteristics of ASD.

Review:

"Drawing Autism is a drop-dead beautiful book that celebrates the artistry and self-expression found in the drawings, paintings, and collages created by individuals diagnosed with autism. It is a stunning, thoughtful and yes, HOPEFUL book that is not just for families touched by autism, but for all who are curious about the disorder."
--Examiner

"If you're a practicing or aspiring art therapist, this book is essential reading and it also offers the casual reader an insight into this curious strand of outsider art."
