Drawing Lines

drafting board

Sometimes I forget to teach the basics about landscape graphics and assume everyone can wield a t-square and triangle to create perfect horizontal and vertical lines. This year I’m teaching my entry-level studio partly online, which meant I wouldn’t be in class to demonstrate this important drafting skill. The result, a simple illustration showing the magic of how to draw vertical, horizontal and angled lines with this cool tool combination.

Below are some basic tools to get started. You’ll soon see you’re drawing at a much faster pace, while still being super precise. Enjoy!
