How could I publish a post about Adam Savage’s guide to drawing, but not post any of his drawings?
Please allow me to redeem myself:
Chewbacca’s purse is called a bandolier. Bandoliers exist not only in futures far far away, but in the present day.
From the dictionary:
bandolier / n. a shoulder belt with loops or pockets for cartridges. ORIGIN – from Catalan bandolera (from bandoler ‘bandit’)
Adam’s hand written font in the top left text box stands out. Adding some variety to the lettering transforms a diagram into a near finished piece.
The Raven’s ribs are 8 simple curved lines attached to the spine. But a small amount of foreshortening adds depth.
I wonder if Adam added another set of ribs in the final sculpture.
Don’t disregard the notes.
Near the foot: MAGNET TO ATTACH TO PERCH
In the skull: HEAD TOOTIGHT!
Even his brainstorming sketches have a bit of weight. It’s worth adding shading, even to the quickest doodle.
I’m inspired. Get out and draw today. Or sketch. Or doodle.
Buy Adam’s book – Every Tool’s a Hammer: Life Is What You Make It, or check it out at the library. I checked it out twice before finally buying the book.
