Building a Concept Car

These videos are a bit long but they cover a good chunk of the design process. They take you from ideation to full scale concept car.  The host is a bit stiff but its a good introduction to car design…and the” all black” outfits upper management has to wear. :\ Enjoy!    

Doodles 4

Its been a busy couple of weeks for me. Mostly because i got some weird virus that lasted 8 days and now I’m playing catch up at work. (I haven’t been that sick in a long time. Blah!) That being said i had plenty of time to do some drawing on my fancy new tablet and watch a lot of TV. [...]

More from the Master of Chicken Scratch

A few months back we did a small review on a book called “Masters of Chicken Scratch Vol.1” by Dwayne Vance. Dwayne is an amazing artist and he is releasing MOCS Vol. 2. Once we get the new book we’ll do a review, and true to his form I’m sure the content will be awesome and expansive. Until then here is some [...]

Moebius

Jean Henri Gaston Giraud also know by his more popular pseudonym of Moebius passed away in March. I didn’t really know much about him until i saw his artwork featured on the ConceptShip blog back in march. Since then, I have been enthralled with his life, artwork, and style. I have really enjoyed all the wonderful colors, unique line [...]

New Creature Box Book!

If you don’t know about the CreatureBox then you should. Their content is always fresh, crazy unique, and they’re amazing artists. These guys are definitely in my top 10…especially since i have a thing for weird creatures and robots. They’re finally making a full fledged book and I’m way excited! Jump over to their site @ kickstarter and you can get the book, [...]

Crazy white board artwork

This is pretty sweet and i wish this guy was my teacher in high school. Gregory Euclide created awesome murals during the 25 minutes he had for lunch. Apparently it started with him teaching his students what they could do in a short amount of time and then they got hooked. There are more images [...]

Doodles III

Here’s some doodles from the past month or so. I’ve been really obsessed with Chinese dragons and Asia’s ancient artistic style. (is that enough “A” words in a row?) I think im going to do an illustration next. Enjoy!

Article: This Man Can’t Stop Innovating

Here is a wonderful article about design in a third world environment. Its not Sketching but for me its just as Inspirational. I love the fact that these stories are getting more face time in the media. I think, as designers, we usually aggrandize the crazy cool electronics/cars/footwear. They are cool but i usually feel that [...]

Solidoodle!

I’m totally getting this! Sub $500 3D prototyping. Solidoodle! Who else is with me?

SketchTheatre.com

Here is a sweet site with all the video candy you could want. You get a decent view of process and there’s a lot of great artists. The videos are really sped up and there’s not a lot of info on the materials, time, or tools they used. But there’s a ton of inspirational content so i’m not complaining. Enjoy!

Book Announcement: Informality

As many of you know Andres Parada is a good friend of ours. We’ve hosted his work a few times and he has his own featured page in our Sketchbook section. Well, he now has a book of his own and its a 100+ pages of sweetness! The book is being sold through Blurb and [...]
