Azon Saves Energy
Daylighting systems
produced with Azon

structural thermal barrier

technologies-the MLP™

or Dual Cavity-for

aluminum windows and
curtain wall, along with

high performance glazing

components for

insulating glass, will yield
a fenestration system

capable of upholding the
highest efficiency and

sustainability standards.

energy conservation.

In hand drawing, there is no algorithm to determine what
goes where. Every line or brushstroke is the artist's signature,
placed there, either carefully or haphazardly. For this reason,
each drawing has the potential to reveal the artist's personality, taste, predilections and strengths.
Some computer illustrators are able to imbue their digital
work with a hand-done quality, in essence, capturing the
advantages of both worlds.
Before becoming a digital illustrator, Dennis Allain was a
successful renderer in colored pencil, marker, watercolour and
air brush. Now he works with digital models which he draws,
paints and scribbles over in order to achieve the remarkably
emotive and tactile images that he is renowned for.
Sketching remains a mandatory component of the
design and artistic process. Modern technology
has provided us with pressure sensitive tablets,
where the motion of the hand and its contact with
the line can help capture the spark of creation. It
also aids the artist in breaking through the rigid
design barriers that can often occur when dealing
with the absolute nature of a digital interface.
Digital tools are a product of today. They help
harness a limitless world of possibilities, but they
do not have control over the artist's result. The
artist has the final say.
Art is not taught; it is practiced.

architectural students. A research paper "Drawing-to-Learn: A Framework for
Using Drawings to Promote Model-Based Reasoning in Biology," discusses
the growing interest in hand drawing as a means of teaching future biologists.
