Mark Kokavec of Render Demo design studio has relaunched his Kickstarter campaign to get his book into production and available for widespread purchase. His book, “HOW TO DRAW SHOES” follows a unique “phase-out” process to familiarize the reader with drawing and designing their own ideas. Mark has worked at a number of footwear companies including New Balance and has developed a portfolio of teaching tools through video tutorials on his site. Now, he wants to launch his book and needs the help of more backers.
*From his Kickstarter page*
This unique sketchbook shows you how to set up different perspective views including side, front, heel, top down, bottom and more. It contains over 100 photo-blue templates and guidelines that you can use as underlays to sketch your own unique creative shoe designs. Our unique “phase-out” template based system slowly reduces your dependency on guidelines. As you progress through the book, more and more guidelines are slowly removed. The goal with this book is that once your finished, you will not need to rely on any guidelines for sketching your concepts. This sketchbook also contains general footwear knowledge, terms, industry information, reference materials and more. Its more than just a typical plain old sketchbook filled with blank pages.
So, go check out his Kickstarter project here and consider pledging at least $25 dollars for a book of your own! These books won’t go into production if the fundraising does not surpass $10,000. Have a look at the page, watch his video, read up on his work and decide for yourself.
