Synopsis
“Digital Drawing for Landscape Architecture” won the “Award of Excellence” from the 2012 Professional Awards and Student Awards by the American Society of Landscape Architects (ASLA). For a hundred years, pencil, pen, markers, and watercolor have been the principal tools of representation for landscape architects and urban planners. Today, those hand-powered aids have been replaced by computers and Computer-aided design (CAD). “Digital Drawing for Landscape Architects” bridges the gap between the traditional analog and the new digital tools and shows you how to apply timeless concepts of representation to enhance your design work in digital media. Building on the tried-and-true principles of analog representation, “Digital Drawing for Landscape Architecture” explores specific techniques for creating landscape design digitally. It explains the similarities and differences between analog and digital rendering, and then walks you through the steps of creating digitally rendered plans, perspectives, and diagrams. You’ll explore: Computing Basics Raster and vector images Setting up the document Base imagery and scaling Hand-drawn linework and diagrams Text, leaders, and page layout Color, shading, and textures Creating a section elevation Perspective drawing Techniques for using the newest versions of Adobe Illustrator, Photoshop, and Acrobat as well as older versions With more than 500 full-color drawings and photographs alongside proven techniques, “Digital Drawing for Landscape Architects” will help you enhance your skills though a unique marriage of contemporary methods with traditional rendering techniques.

Payback is paradise in this start to a trilogy from “New York Times “bestselling author Jenny Han and Siobhan Vivian. Postcard-perfect Jar Island is home to charming tourist shops, pristine beaches, amazing oceanfront homes–and three girls secretly plotting revenge. KAT is sick and tired of being bullied by her former best friend. LILLIA has always looked out for her little sister, so when she discovers that one of her guy friends has been secretly hooking up with her, she’s going to put a stop to it. MARY is perpetually haunted by a traumatic event from years past, and the boy who’s responsible has yet to get what’s coming to him. None of the girls can act on their revenge fantasies alone without being suspected. But together…anything is possible. With an unlikely alliance in place, there will be no more “I wish I’d said…” or “If I could go back and do things differently…” These girls will show Jar Island that revenge is a dish best enjoyed together.

” Digital Drawing is a sophisticated digital media book focused primarily on creating photomontage images for site design. This book, aims to be a software neutral and has a strong, theory-based designer’s point of view. This is the first landscape architecture book available as an eBook, so the authors thoroughly embrace modern communication tools while still holding to the tried-and-true landscape architecture values of high-quality graphic representation.” ( Landscape Architecture , August 2010) “This book’s exceptional clarity earned it the highest honor in the Communications category. It is organized and written to appeal specifically to landscape architects who have been trained in traditional representation methods on the drafting table but who would like to work effectively in digital media. The jury clearly saw the book’s value. “It’s the first drawings book I’ve seen that is contemporary and clear”, one juror said.” ( Landscape Architecture Magazine , September 2012)
