42 – Stranger in a strange land

June 7, 2020 By

“Grok” is one of my favorite words. Thanks to Robert A. Heinlein for coining it in his 1961 science fiction novel, “Stranger in a Strange Land.” It means to completely and thoroughly understand something, to be at one with it. Not sure how it’s properly used in a sentence, but let me just say that I do not yet completely grok what I am doing here with my drawing perspective.
I made a sketch to confirm how objects behave in the strange curvilinear world. I’ll make my life a little easier by using an eye level view. Drawing boxes is the easiest way to study dimension. Think about objects as fitting inside boxes. It’s a super helpful way to check consistency of visual relationships.
