Simple Drawing Tip: Vehicles

Summer is a fun time to be outdoors and catch up with family and friends.  It's also a great time to practice new skills before the busy fall hits.  Thanks to those of you who have shared your progress drawing simple people.  Keep up the great work!

For our next Simple Drawing Tip, we're going to learn how to draw three simple vehicles.  Vehicles are an important part of visual language because as mobile objects they can communicate a variety of different ideas quickly.

A car or truck for example, can communicate mobility, action, speed, or a step along a journey.  It can also be used as a container that carries one idea to another. 

I find myself drawing rockets when future scenarios are being discussed, a new idea is being launched, or I need a container that shows high velocity.

Below are simple step-by-step instructions on how to quickly draw a car, truck or rocket.  Once you have the basic shapes down, have fun customizing your own vehicles!
