‘Sketching is still a powerful tool’
July 19th, 2011
A book Olly found really useful whilst with us on his work experience was ‘Sketching’ by Koos Eissen & Roselien Steur. Sketching is a powerful tool for communicating to fellow designers, engineers and clients. We suggest any other budding students purchase a copy.
Eissen & Steur have also written a successor: both are available on Amazon: Purchase Here
‘Sketching the Basics starts with the white sheet of paper or the empty screen and explains the rudiments of learning to draw both clearly and comprehensively, using step by step illustrations, examples and strategies. The chapters in the book cover the most important decisions you’ll have to take as a sketcher and discuss the problems you will have as a starter. With clear exercises, examples and clear explanations. Sketching: The Basics is the long awaited successor to the international bestseller Sketching by Koos Eissen and Roselien Steur. This book explains the basic sketching techniques and decisions more in depth then the previous book and provides much more step-by-step example drawings, which makes it even more suitable for students and professionals who want to become better sketchers.
