Commentary on Drawing

“A knowledge of drawing, at least so far as the fundamentals are concerned, is of great service to the beginner. All work, after being conceived in the brain, should be transferred to paper. A habit of this kind becomes a pleasure, and, if carried out persistently, will prove a source of profit.”

All of us enginerds had to take a mandatory drafting class, complete with drawing boards, Tee-squares, triangles and all that. Drafting is different than sketching out ideas, and both have their place. If nothing else, all of the vocabulary and techniques of drafting with a drawing board and pencil have followed into computer based CAD or design programs.
