Random Vehicles

I’ve been binging through different vehicle designs over the past month trying to get better at figuring out their forms and trying to get some design languages down and explored.


Wanted to see how an integrated roof basket could influence the overall design of the vehicle. The bump in the hood is a bit more dramatic that i intended but it also started out with much different proportions.

01 - “Explorer”

13 - “jeep”


Ended up a bit more conventional than i was anticipating but kept it fast and gave it a snorkel so you know it’s serious.


Through many of these sketches i was playing around with the same basic repeating angles for the wheel wells and also for removing large parts of the front and rear panels for better approach angles.

The corrugated panel line on the side was really fun to play around with.


Rocky Mountain National Park Plein Air

Managed to escape the bustle of the family vacation to RMNP with my iPad Pro. This isn't work i do too often so it's always fun getting into a rhythm and finding good shaded spots to set up on.

Mobile Generator

Not as fun or as charming as the "Hermit Crab" but a little more intentionally designed - and I had to get it out of my system none the less.

Basically, a diesel-electric locomotive retrofitted for all terrain use allowing it to move into a position where it could switch over its generators to power camps, construction sites, etc. This one has been further modified for use in snow.

Vacation Plein Air Attempts

I had the blessing and curse of taking 2 vacations this year. It wasn't easy to ditch the family and have some time alone but every so often I'd drop a flash bang and get out to try my hand digital painting out in the wild courtesy of my iPad Pro and Procreate.

I never did this kind of stuff even back when I drew traditionally so I am pretty far behind the curve.

Drawing on the iPad Pro with Procreate

A few weeks ago I got my hands on an iPad Pro + Pencil and finally had time to work through my first piece on it. 

I immediately gravitated towards Procreate, and after a few sketches and rendering tests to get into the swing of things I dove into this guy. As a digital artist who hasn't kept a traditional sketchbook in quite some time I have a feeling that this hardware and software will be a liberation for me!
