Other great resource for ID drawing 'Sacred Geometry' 'Design Drawing' 'Design Sketching' and especially 'Learning Curves'. These books have also been very helpful in my studies as a designer.
If you do not find this review helpful, please comment as to why. Thank you!
Thank God for this book I have been using Powels books for years but this book includes new materials for drawing. More PLEASE!
I had to buy this book via Frame magazine.. why is amazon taking so long to have it in bountiful supply
I have been designing products for 15 years and have purchased quite a few reference books. This would be the bible of sketch-o-rama. LOTS of different techniques and excellent breakdowns of method. Worth every penny. Ir you are a product designer get one and saddle up the Cintiq for a ride!! Giddy Yup!! Hopefully Amazon will pick this up soon.
The book itself has 2 distinct sections intertwined;a very loose lesson on the various aspects of sketching for product design, and case studies of actual product designers that incorporate some aspects of the lesson at hand.
There is ample room for improvement though, while it is chock full of great graphics, photos and sketches,I would rather have had more reference sketches maybe even a compendium of shading,shapes and lightning ,and less case studies,it also lacks on the step by step department, and yes it follows no clear path and just trows itself recklessly into the subject;this is a book best read in small doses with some markers and paper at hand.
In any case these flaws are easily overlooked by how useful and effective it is as a learning and reference tool.
