Drawing 101

We recently had a lesson on how to draw, which I found very interesting. We discussed in great detail the basics of drawing, and why every design student needs to learn to draw. We was shown a short video by a man named “Saul Bass”

I found this video enlightening and it really made me want to better myself. After this shot video we discussed the phrase ‘Taking a line for a walk’ and ‘Pareidolia’ – Making a connection between thing with no prior connection. A good example of this is seeing images in clouds.

Further from this we discussed the importance of drawing simple Geometric shapes (Cubes, Spheres, Cones, Cylinders) and trying to imagine the drawing as a 3 Dimensional object on a 2 Dimensional plane. This idea we see a lot in street art and drawing illusions.

We have been set a task to draw some simple shapes in different angles with different lighting angles. I decided to do have one light source and use that source to make the shadows have different angles.
