New Years Around the Corner...

Happy Holidays to all. Hope your breaks are going well. Here's a painting inspired by Seng Ho Henrik http://www.seunghohenrik.com/. I found out about him through Annis Naeem, a fellow Art Center student, who you can link to here: http://annisnaeem.blogspot.com/. Take some time and look at both of them, they have some amazing work.

Instrument Panel for Study Models








This was a really fun assignment for a class taught by Dennis Campbell. My Instrument panel is a central seating, curvilinear form. This model is made of a volumetric foamcore base with Art Center Special paper formed around it.I think the model does the sketch justice but I feel like the mock up I did in copy paper had more feeling to it... Oh well, next time.

Vis. Comm.










Vis. Comm. is easily my favorite class. I love the technical perspective tricks and being able to make complex forms out of the side view and footprint. The last four are modifications of a disc sander, all really fun shapes. The earlier airplane was a quick extra for week 3 or 4.... Anyways, I have a feeling you'll be seeing this last sketch again very soon...

Way Things Work Highlights







This was a class taught by Nathan Allen. I learned a ton in this class and I enjoyed figuring out how different products worked. The actual 5 hours of class every week was hard to stay awake in with presentations and such but the research done outside of class was awesome. Just go to "How stuff works" and type in whatever you want to find out about.

Design Process 1 Highlights






So here are a few highlights from my Design Process 1 Class. It was a lot of silhouette, linework and value. All in all it wasn't half bad Mike Yamada gave pretty good crits every week, and I can actually walk away from that class understanding the difference between good and bad silhouettes.
