i want to see pictures of great drawings done by hand or partially by hand. let's admit it: we all fetishize them, but most of what we see these days is digital.
blown away by these books as a kid... and the while i was just looking for images, i noticed a lot of the illustrations have a very technical feel to them... imaginary plans and sections...
wonder if thats a coincidence that i was so fascinated by this 20 years ago
Personally I was always impressed with old architectural engravings, like the backs of twenty dollar bills. I wish I had the capacity to produce those kinds of images by hand.
Sorry this is cut off. I've never figured out how to size pictures on here.
this is an inevitability so i'm just going to get it out of the way:
probably artwork, such as collages and paintings, can be included as well
le bossman, i love ltl's drawings.
I love this thread idea, let's see some more.
Lebbeus Woods' drawings are so phenomenal. You can feel/see his hand in them, but they are simultaneously otherworldy.
This drawing can make me weep:
The charcoal is so fully its own material, but is also purely glass (again, simultaneously, and isn't that what a drawing is supposed to be? Both a representation and its own object?).
Please let that link work...
like everyone else i have a major jones for LTL's renderings and Lebbeus' drawings... i've also always been a fan of watercolor sketches...
that is a killer dwg
here is a pastel drawing i love
and a graphite drawing by the same artist
maybe i should post some of my own artwork. i have slides to scan
Yes, you should !
I just love this old drawing; the architect coudn't help himself from embellishing what would have been just an orthodox elevation. . .
There's a man's figure on the right -- and what is up with those trees. . .?!
Eric Sloane -- from "A Reverence for Wood" (1965)
steven is a fave, but i also quite like peter salter, an unsung but very good architect...who does some funky dwgs too.
damn you official sketch thread!
i've always been partial to this honored man;
nothing we haven't seen before, but beautiful none the less, and no ridiculous 3dh either.
Darden visits me in dreams.
crap. once more.
isn't hugh ferriss the guy that rem koolhaas was in love with in delirious new york?
Ucello. No 3Ds Max.
lletdownl, Where is that first image from? Could it be relative to this thread? Thanks!
indeed, the first image i posted is an illustration from some children's books called Dinotopia. They were my favorites growing up... id spend hours just looking at the illustrations, they were incredibly intricate.
loved those books...then they made that crap-tastic movie...
I came across these sketches from Erick Van Egeraat while looking for images of his first ING project. I have never seen his drawings before (now they're all renderings)... they remind me a lot of Lebbeus' work:
beta, who's drawings are those? they are so cool!
and this guy;
cris, it's douglas darden...
i love me some preston scott cohen descriptive geometry drawin's
what about paul schwiker? anyone at asu scanned any of his drawings?
quizzical, is that the other Paul, Rudolph ?
Paul Schweikher's drawings would be a treat; I've never seen one.
the whole archive is at asu for some reason
SDR -- yes, Paul Rudolph
T. Kelly Wilson for Pei Cobb Freed & Partners
great models would be an interesting thing to see as well
