To clear their minds and organize their ideas, artists will often start projects by drawing sketches. Drawing – The Purpose asks why artists and designers use drawing in this way to kick-start their creative thinking, considering the application of drawing and its various uses across disciplines. From the interdisciplinary perspectives of archaeology, jewellery design, illustration and landscape architecture, this innovative volume highlights how drawing is used in the professional world. With examples from both contemporary and historical contexts, Drawing – The Purpose will be an invaluable resource for practitioners and scholars seeking a rationale for why we draw.

Drawing – The Purpose follows on from the book of essays, Drawing – The Process (Intellect, 2005) which investigated drawing as an interdisciplinary activity with historical and contemporary examples.
