We are honored to put a spotlight on the work of Malaysian landscape designer and talented illustrator Abdul Hakim Kussim. Abdul's drawings are have a gestural quality that highlights design thinking and the constant iterative design process.
Hj Hakim works with a variety of media ranging from pencil, ink, colored pencil, watercolor and markers and utilizes the overlay/trace process method which is fast and effective as design ideas are being generated. This is a first in a series of Abdul's work and his process.(Photo below: Abdul Hakim Kussim)
