Book Review: WOOSH!: Spaceship Sketches from the Couch

WOOSH!: Spaceship Sketches from the Couch - 01


Lorin Wood likes drawing on the couch after a day's of work and now even has an artbook of spaceships to show for it. I find it quite humorous that there's even a graphic showing the comfortable position he has discovered on the couch.

Unlike other books from Design Studio Press, this paperback volume is stapled bind. The paper quality is matte and thick enough. The book's sold at an affordable price. No complaints from me.

This 80-page artbook features spaceship sketches, so maybe it's more like a sketchbook. The wonderful spaceship designs are drawn mostly on toned paper in grayscale and highlights with occasional colours thrown in. There are simple 15-minute sketches and the detailed 60-minute ones. They are drawn in a rather technical style with different accents to the lines, and copic marker renderings for the shadows.

The designs look terrific. I love the detail, form and composition. They look very physical. The latter half of the book has spaceship designs inspired by Star Wars so you'll get to see quite a few spaceships with those Star Wars-ish wings.

There's also a short two-page interview with Lorin Wood. By the way, he's also the founder of Nuthin But Mech which has two artbooks out already.

If you like spaceship designs, check out BLAST: spaceship sketches and renderings as well.
