Vector Render

I have been experimenting with digital media recently and have been really into soft good recently with my sketching. It has been a nice change of pace from my usual stuff. This is an vector render full exploded view of a project I worked on last year. Good way to brush up on creating textures and manipulating vector work.

Cars 2!!!

We sure are super excited for the new Cars movie…well at least Dom n I are!…so, once upon a time we worked together and created an intern design challenge for ourselves that involved the marketing interns. This was our first chance to run through the ID process and come up with some cool stuff and work with people outside of design…

Here’s a slice of one of our brainstorms:

Our top choice concepts:

This here’s RandoMater…he randomly falls apart as the child plays with him and they have to help put him together. He talks so that he can give them clues as to what is wrong and if they fixed the right thing. To turn him off, the child covers his eyes and then he goes to sleep!

And then we had Dom’s sweet drifter Cars concept with the 5th wheel that allowed the car the slide into the turn…

Who wouldn’t want a Lightning Mcqueen helmet with walkie talkie and cushion for your head so you can sleep and a visor to block out the sun…and the LED lightning bolt too “Kachow!”

Dom had this wonderful idea to help kids save $ and in return get to power their Lightning Mcqueen…a piggy bank gas station that filled up an electric charge as you put $ in!

And then there was Dom’s nugget…the Cars Car Wash set, which he really set aim to find an activity that both father and son could enjoy doing together (we love our Pops’)!

Last but not least was our concept blast off that Dom and I had where we just cut loose…kept it rough and thumbnail style, just trying to capture the ideas as quickly as possible…

We learned quite a bit and had tons of fun…the next step of course would have been to get these prototyped (something unfortunately we didn’t get to 😦 but nevertheless…)

Back to SJSU

This past weekend I got to go back to SJSU to attend the Western District Conference in SJ…lots of great speakers and it was awesome to see our very own Tony Ton present for the Merit Award…congrats bro on getting the SJ Merit Award!!!

I also had a blast going back to school and checking on the kids and what they are up to (cramming as always on their final projects!)…you guys rock!

Some sketches I found wandering through the rooms, glad to see that ya’ll are having so much fun! It’s always inspiring to see them working so hard and putting out great work…

Go Sharks!!!

Congrats to our San Jose Sharks for beating those damn red wings…sorry Billy D, but your boys did almost give us a heart attack (we were going to put a dead octopus on your desk!)…

MeanJeans Megan and me tagging up our white board in our ID playpen…go Sharks and to all my brothers up in Burnaby, we love ya’ll but your killer whale Canucks ain’t got ish on SJ!

Love the deflating tire there MeanJeans…

Lord Kensington

Here @ Kensington we are proud of our rich history and heritage that stands the test of time from generation to generation.  Kensington was originally founded by The Honourable William Edwardes Kensington the 4th, also known as the Baron of Kensington or Lord Kensington.   As a very eccentric and avid lock collector, Lord Kensington was a very important figure in the County of Middlesex.   In 1868 he was elected to the House of Commons for Havefordwest, and held the Security Seat until 1872.  Lord Kensington never lost sight for his love of  collecting mid-evil locks, widgets and all sorts of gizmos.   Apart from his political career he also held the honorary post of Chief Lieutenant of Redwood Shire.    In 1873, Lord Kensington invented a mechanical tamper proof, tumbling device for the Earl of Limrick, to lock down his expensive computational instruments and gauges.  He filled for his first patent that very same year and he turned his love of collecting locks into much much more.

New Blood: Introducing Tony Ton
