Don’t think I ever shared the finished product on this one, and figured it was worth it for the gearheads. I was the designer on a bunch of the parts of this; lots of work on material and finish, getting the 4-foot diameter brass disc made (had to source it from a shipbuilder, shipped from Maryland to Wisconsin to…
Que sera sera.
I guess all the people importing Seras got me thinking about Bubble-era Japanese cars. Just found this in a sketch folder.
I planted a little tree over her. I hope it lives forever. The last couple days were tough; she hadn’t eaten more than a nibble in three weeks or more. At full weight, she was like 11 lbs, at the end she was less than 5.5. She’s been with me most of my adult life. The head knew it was time, but the heart still has…
The author of the project is Daniel Soriano, currently working as Concept Surface Designer at Volvo.

Made it back here... last time was around 1982, and my great-grandfather was there. Gotta find the pic of him, looking at the plane. Imagine being 18, during WWI, and flying again in WWII.
Owner walked up as I was about to take a pic. Greetings and salutations commenced.
First time back on the Outer Banks since 1996. A few things have changed, a few things haven’t. I didn’t have much opportunity to use the camera the way I wish I could, but, hey.
Oilstainlabs’ Half11 has moved from NURBS to metal.

Sitting on a turn-off viewpoint on the PCH.
If not, should it? And who’d take it up? I think we used to, but memory’s getting hazy. Since I’ve been challenged to compete at the Detroit Sketchbattle, I’m also gonna post to the instagram, and... who knows.
Honestly, I have no idea. @davesaddiction suggested a 4-door Hyundai N, M3 competitor... and I just don’t have any clue what a Hyundai should look like.
Just some quick pics, very light edits, because I had an hour to do it and I need the practice on every front.
Took the i3 and the girl’s CX5 out back for a thorough exterior washdown and wax before it got too hot, this AM.
Nick has an Exocet suggested a new DeLorean. Sigh. So I’ve done a couple sketches when I have moments. Haven’t tackled what it looks like at the back, yet. Kinda looking at a 1980s X New Ford GT thing. So it’ll mean a lot of empty space at the back, but I think it needs big swaths of stainless, and carbon bits exposed.
Quick sketchbook doodle for your time and input.
