Recently I got very excited about industrial design, partially due to McKinsey’s acquisition of this absolutely awesome design studio named LUNAR in 2015. Of course I would need to understand our design language better, as a first step, I found some time this weekend and did some quick studies of LUNAR’s work.
Then I realized, it’s the last page of my sketchbook… time to start a new one, to draw more and draw better…But I certainly feel this old friend deserved some sort of farewell, flipping the pages is like looking back into life; Marks, lines, forms contains subtle expressions of the mood when creating them.
So I decided to put the whole book here at once, in reverse order, although some drawings have appeared in earlier posts, some are bad/unfinished/empty, but this is the book as is, representing bits and pieces of life (mostly life spent in various coffee houses in Shanghai).
Last page, words on the right was an experiment I did trying to see if markers can be used for caligraphy…obviously a master copy =P
Got all excited about the Force Awakens a few weeks ago
Bought the LEGO Classic and Mindstorm EV3 (still in the planning stage of my Turing machine project with EV3) I guess one can see traces of my trying to pick up industrial sketching starting here
And I did a study of the types of basic bricks…
One day I was waiting in Starbucks and saw a new set of coffee things
Some very small auto doodles…love where they are going! Feels like 60s again.
In Italy obsessed with those red ink drawings from 1500s…and some museum sketching
That day I forgot to bring paper to life drawing session in Florence…
Between Disney and Art Nouveau (I learned they are opening a fancy Remy restaurant in the Disney Wonders cruise)
On Pirates of the Caribbean
And some more pirates from the original (and best) Disneyland when the ride opened in the 70s
An unfinished train
Master copies: Left-Chris Sanders; Right-Picasso
More Chris Sanders and ransoms in a certain cafe
Somehow got interested in steampunk for a bit…the character is a copy from the wonderful book ‘walking my octopus’
Read newest ivory poaching reports…
Some Shanghaiese architectures
More Shanghai, a little field trip to the acient city of Fenghuang
More hip coffee shopsTanks form life
Cubes walking over to the horizon (first test page to get used to the material)
Opening spread of the book: hats
Well…that’s the book…cover to cover. Hope you enjoyed it =P
