Drawing is the backbone of art and design. Despite all the wonders of the digital age, the best designers, illustrators, and artists know that it's good to step back occasionally and hit the refresh button on your hand and mind.
Playing with Sketches takes a fun, hands-on approach to exploring drawing principles. Beginning with an introduction to the philosophy of learning through play, it brings you through a series of basic warm-up exercises that can be combined with later projects.
Soon you move on to more challenging exercises, including word games, dimensional shapes, sketchbooks, and letter forms. Eventually you create a "toolkit" of ideas and skills developed through the process of play.
With contributions from more than 25 designers, illustrators, and artists, this book is packed with creative, adaptable ideas and numerous examples. It also provides a peek into the creative process of a slew of talented individuals.
By encouraging you to break the rules, collaborate, and more, Playing with Sketches is sure to inspire many meaningful insights for your drawing practice.
