I sometimes envy my landscape architect planner friends who can sketch out a community's vision in beautiful strokes. When I must draw something, my sketches leave developers and residents hoping for urban renewal (my aerials are akin to a Pollock). Indeed, I can't draw. I wonder if there are any cut and paste software programs or some other existing resource that would help planners create visuals without having to elbow the office artist. For fun, I've started with a couple books I found on Amazon referencing drawing cityscapes.
I'm not looking for examples of sound planning practices; I know where to find those. I'm looking for a stock of illustrations that a planner could integrate into existing streetscape photos...I think.
