“As an architect and educator, freehand drawing is part of what I do on a daily basis. A sketch is not just an illustration tool - it is a way to document a place, a feeling, a state of mind. It is a way to see a place, a way to visualise an architectural concept or an effective visual communication tool. It is really a personal interpretation of the built reality, so a drawing cannot be neutral. Light and shadows play an important role, so overall tonality is something I deal with early on, before detailing. No drawing should be overwhelming in time and effort, so I complete my sketches in under one hour. While my designs cover high-rise residential and office spaces, hospitality, and master planning, I am limiting my online postings to travel sketches - at least for now...”
Dan Hogman has developed the capacity to quickly illustrate architectural concepts, public places or urban scenes, capturing the essence in few and relevant gestures. His drawings enjoy applicability across a wide range of projects, from architectural high-rise design concepts and hospitality resorts to interior commercials and Hollywood movie sets. In addition to running his design practice, Hogman also teaches illustration and runs design and illustration workshops in San Francisco and beyond.
