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