Hi all,

I'm writing a journal paper on the importance of sketching and am looking for contributors with good quality sketches. Your sketchwork will be published with an ISBN.

Sorry there's no royalties on offer but you will get a name check in the article and, of course, a copy in the post!

Many thanks

Hi All,

First of all, I've got an embarrassment of riches here, thank you! I'm most grateful for the kind offers of help I've had from you all. If this is okay with you all, I'll go through your online work and pick out some examples. I'll then PM you back with the sketch(s) to ask if I may use the ones I’ve chosen.

What I'm looking for are examples that suggest the versatility of sketching; the different ways it can be used to support the various stages of practice - which could also be its hybrid use with other digital media. I'll personally post a copy of the journal to anyone able to help. And as I say, it has an ISBN and will count as a publication if you're into that sort of thing.

In the mean time if you would like to read the article, I’d be happy to send it - just let me know.

James.

Hi All,

First of all I'd like to thank you all for your kind offers of help. I've looked through all the work of all those who were good enough to offer, the quality of which was quite outstanding. In the end, in the interest of simplicity, I've decided to go with the work of just one designer.

Again the reasons are pragmatic rather than one sketch being 'better' than another. One of the things that fascinates me about the designer's sketch is its ability to communicate personality - saying one sketch is in some way better than another may be, in some ways, missing the point.

Many thanks again for all your help.

James.

I would be interested in this. When are you looking to publish? How will you distribute your books? Please check out my website http://www.renderdemo.com to see some of my work. I have many more sketches and renderings that are not posted to the site.

Regards,
Mark
