Hand rendering starts with knowing how to sketch. Drawing perspective starts with knowing how to sketch. Drafting floor plans starts with knowing how to sketch. Visualizing ideas in your mind to your client starts with __________? You got it, SKETCHING! + I get so many inquiries from people wanting to learn to hand render but you must know how to sketch before you hand render. It’s like learning to walk before you crawl. It took me having a conversation (with coffee and tea of course) via FaceTime with my good friend @verona.searchfield to determine that. + Sketching doesn’t need to be perfect as it’s just a way to communicate your ideas quickly. When you learn to sketch with that concept in mind you’re actually teaching yourself the techniques I mentioned above 👆🏻. For example, when you practice quick sketching you’re learning to draw a straight line, even though your drawing the line crooked, it will help you with drafting floor plans and drawing perspective later. + If you sketch for a week, maybe 15 mins a day, then you will see a difference in your line work, I promise! Maybe I should do a 7 day instagram challenge on this so I can prove it to ya 😜. Suggestions?
A little hand rendered elevation love for ya ❤️. It’s the weekend and it’s almost Christmas, and the new year. Big things coming in 2019!
We met an intriguing industrial designer this summer in Chicago as he launched his new chair to the commercial furniture industry. He shared his inspiration with us in designing the chair which is my kind of talk 😁. We asked him questions and he had answers and snapped a few pics with him. Through a series of awesome ladies (Morgan and Krista) this kind gentleman, Carl Gustav Magnusson (look up his bio, it includes Knoll 👍🏼) created me and my intern @r.felicia89 a personal sketch with our names on it. I mean how awesome is that? Sometimes the smallest things in life can make you the happiest and this sketch from him is worth more than money could ever buy! I will cherish it for decades. + What are the small things in your life your grateful for?
