  • This book will appeal to a wide demographic - students, professionals, architects, illustrators, graphic designers, aspiring artists, and the general population
  • A collection of thousands of tiny freehand sketches drawn from imagination reproduced from a single sketchbook.

This book is a reproduction of thousands of graphic images from a single sketchbook, drawn over the course of twenty-seven years. As a way to challenge the approach of drawing what is in front of the artist, these freehand sketches are a collection of images from imagination and memory.


What started as an exercise to break out of a design block, these images began on a single sheet and then became a visual journey and exploration of landscapes, everyday items, architecture, abstracts and compositions.


Like the original sketchbook, Random Imaginations is a visual catalogue of countless subjects and visions, to be used as discovery, inspiration, or just casual viewing. The idea was to publish a reproduction of a sketchbook of drawings that can be used as a visual resource and inspiration - a companion book rather than being a 'how to' or instructional book. It is like a photo album of freehand drawn images and is meant to be an enjoyable book to have by your side.

Eddie Chau is a landscape architect in the San Francisco Bay Area. A graduate of the Masters of Landscape Architecture programme at University of California at Berkeley, he has taught drawing at UC Berkeley Extension and UC Davis.
