Sign in. Watch now. This delightful episode takes a trip down memory lane as it concentrates upon the life and career of Richard Ewing "Dick" Powell, from his birth, in Mountain View, Arkansas, as the second of three sons of Sallie Thompson and Ewing Powell, through his busy career on radio, stage, screen and television.
Over three decades of innovating products, Dick says that he's learnt that reality and ideas are utterly inseparable; that inspiration is more valuable than perspiration; that foresight is as important as insight; and that observation can be more helpful than information. Above all, while experience is everywhere, vision is rare but essential to effective innovation. He challenges companies of all types to think like designers and create a climate for fostering innovation and visions of the future.
Whereas Technical Illustration — Techniques and Applications was more of a textbook of tools and techniques, this book is a practical guide to accurately drawing and rendering for the purpose of communicating design ideas. Nothing trumps the immediacy and intuitiveness of drawing on paper. The structure of the book is logical starting with sketching from observation, then drawing in a measured perspective system with good emphasis on ellipsesthen surface rendering and finally shadow casting. It closes with a gallery of process and finished automotive concept art.
