Working as an illustrator and designer in architecture and publishing for more than 30 years has taught me a lot about drawing software.
Brief CV: I have worked on a wide range of magazine titles in the UK, US and Europe and currently illustrate 2 UK based craft titles, Furniture and Cabinetmaking and Woodworking Crafts, providing plans and 3D drawings as well as articles for both. I have illustrated more than 50 books on a wide variety of craft subjects, and have written extensively in craft magazines on the use of computer drawing techniques in furniture making and joinery.
I have a degree in Architecture, and run LineMine, a website that focuses on design drawing techniques and software.
