Abstract [en]

/Drawing/ is a noun, /drawing/ is a verb. A drawing is a finished visual expression, but it’s also an action: the exploration and expression of a thought on a surface.

What if we communicated more through drawings? What if we could ~read~ them? What if we could name lines and say words about why we like them? And what if everyone felt empowered to do it?

“Lines of Thought” is a graphic essay about Visual Literacy and Graphic Communication. A theory and practice book to enable people to draw, appreciate images and develop aesthetic taste and critique.

This project comes from my own passion for drawing, visual culture, and education in the graphic arts. I wish to share this passion with a broad audience by exploring philosophically what it takes to draw and see images, how this should not be a skill of a few and make it more democratic.
