Commissioned concept work for the 'Belle Island Carousel' which would be composed entirely of native, though currently extirpated species of animals.
Quick ink layout of possible child's buggy configurations.
Super slim paper stapler, size of super sharpie.
I had lent my Cintiq out to a colleague, but really wanted to get some colors into this pen sketch, so I settled for photoshop brushes, and the track pad on my mac. I was pleasantly surprised what a few brushes and clipping masks could come up with.
Experimenting with workflow, I found the image of the boxer in an old popular mechanics book set I recently got from my grandfather, and did an overlay giving instant context to the mouthguard.
Styling study for a vacuum system redesign. ( If you haven't guessed by now, I currently own one yellow and three green Copics aside from greyscale), but when used as accents only, I really don't mind. Someday I will expand my set I suppose.
For those of you on the brink of purchasing, go for the copic sketch markers. The brush tip can go places the chisel and fine point on the standard marker simply cannot. Well worth it I promise. You can effectively color in the enclosed shapes of size 11 font without blinking an eye or laying it on thick and fast. I love them.
Sketches like these sure aren't pretty, but they do show a glimpse into my thought process, and messy as they are, I think they show the rudimentary character of true mechanical design sketching- hashing out the How it is before you get to see the What it is.
Storyboard sketches for an experiential design project (they were sketched as the concepts came to me, so they are not in narrative order)
