In the Name of God بسم الله
salamon alaikum, I think you need to consider the source of that hadith, also it's best to ask your mujtahid, to guide your actions in the most correct manner as possible in the absence of our Imam (as). Art work doesn't just consist of drawing of drawing living, breathing creatures, it can also envelope and be anything else as long as it is not spreading corruption but helping Islam and adding to the growth and guidance of humanity. It is a good and necessary means of promoting the truth. The only thing that Islam doesn't allow us to do is look at private parts of unpermissibe (namahram) people*. So drawing them obviously would be a problem. Your intentions matter too, why you are doing something. *I dont know if that includes, the upper private parts for women or not.
