In Person – Rick Bartholomew
December 2, 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Magic City Books is proud to welcome Rick Bartholomew, retired professor of interior design at Oklahoma State University and author of Hand-drawn Renderings of Architecture and Interior Design for an in-person event on Thursday December 2 at 7:00 pm in the Algonquin Room at Magic City Books.
Rick’s area of specialty is furniture design and presentation illustration. He has a copyrighted furniture collection inspired by Native American history and culture and has exhibited his work in gallery showrooms across the country.
This event is free and open to the public. Copies of Hand-drawn Renderings of Architecture and Interior Design will be available for sale at the event and Mr. Bartholomew will sign copies at the conclusion of his presentation.
Hand-drawn Renderings of Architecture and Interior Design is designed to aid the students of design and architectural programs as inspiration in their rendering illustration development and technique. It was intended to have limited text so as to feature the finished rendered compositions, only to describe the medium used and design style concept for the illustrations. The last section of the book has a series of copyright-free line drawings one can print and experiment with their technique development or just have fun with color and material finish treatments.
The author believes there is a soft movement within the various design disciplines, their clients, and students of design to appreciate and embrace hand-drawn visual illustrations once again. The book will also appeal to professionals in the architecture and interior design communities as well as builders and their clients for sources of inspiration on design style, finishes, and materials for their future projects.
Rick Bartholomew is a retired interior designer and professor of interior design at Oklahoma State University. He received his bachelor of architecture and master of science (interior design) from Oklahoma State University. Rick currently creates hand-drawn pen-and-ink and colored renderings for architects, designers, builders and personal clients.
