Although in recent years artists and designers have relied more on digital imaging and manipulation, and less on the humble handmade drawing to conceptualize their work, I still prefer the old-fashioned method. Beautifully evocative of the finished work while still able to match the technical precision that sophisticated modern production demands, drawings force the designer to think in pragmatic and creative terms. A fully formed concept with all details should be complete in the mind before being committed to paper. Handmade art has a unique place in the human experience, endowed with a special power, and it stands as a testament to a long term creative practice and a tangible archive of the artist’s studio.
