Product description

From the Inside Flap

This is the long awaited successor to the international besteller Sketching by Koos Eissen and Roselien Steur. Sketching sold over 70.000 copies to date and has many fans, among whom design guru Colani who dubbed it: \"The best sketching book I have ever seen.\"

The new book explains the basic sketching techniques and decisions more in depth 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.
Sketching The Basics can be seen as the prequel to Sketching as it is more targeted at the novice designer. The Basics explains the essential techniques and effects more in detail, taking the reader by the hand and guiding him step by step through all the various aspects of drawing that novice designers come up against.
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. You will learn to use and master the different techniques and also how to apply sketches in the design process.
The authors believe in active observation and participation by the student. During the drawing process there are many moments when choices alter the outcome. Being aware of those moments and the variety of choices and opportunities makes your attitude more flexible and less rigid. Sketching the Basics helps you to sketch with an open mind. And an open mind is key to a good design process.

Koos Eissen and Roselien Steur teach drawing techniques. Eissen is associate professor at Delft University of Technology, where he is responsible for the freehand and digital drawing classes at the Faculty of Industrial Design. Steur is an experienced drawing lecturer at university and art academy level who now specialises in design sketching workshops.

About the Author

The authors teach sketching at the prestegious Delft University, Faculty of Industrial Design in the Netherlands.
Their first book for BIS called Sketching is now an international bestseller with over 60.000 copies sold.
