I remember watching Mark Kokavec doing a tutorial at an IDSA conference in Boston about rendering footwear in Illustrator and it pretty much blew my mind back then. Dude definitely knows his stuff, and he’s decided to unleash some of that knowledge with this ‘FOOTWEAR Sketchbook & Reference Guide’ Kickstarter campaign. Filled with a ton of info, helpful tips and general footwear knowledge, these sketchbooks are pretty much the best reference guide and teaching tool i’ve seen for young designers outside of an actual footwear design class. I would have loved to have seen a little more enthusiasm in the video, but regardless the sketchbook looks incredible and will for sure be a great pick up for any aspiring footwear designers.
‘The Render Demo FOOTWEAR Sketchbook & Reference Guide is the ultimate tool for students, designers, hobbyists and footwear enthusiasts. We’ve designed the ultimate Footwear Design Field Guide by combining commonly used industry reference materials and 100+ sketching templates into a ubiquitous and iconic Moleskin sketchbook form.’
