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.

Return to the ID Room…where it all began…

It’s always so nice to step into the old studio where you:  spent days and nights sketching and cad’d it up in, drowned yourselves in rockstar drinks, almost OD and die on redline, crashed out on the couch or table and woke with magoo all up in your face, got yelled at for bringing foam into, glued gi joes to the ceiling, discovered goatse and tubgirl (do not ask), puked all over the tables after a rough night of drinking, etc….

….Dom and I broke back into the room where it all started for us this past weekend (the old ID Studio @ SJSU) and were so happy to see sketches on the walls, messy tables, new couches (thank god), and the biggest time waster-the dart board…

Here are a few of the sketches on the walls…you guys make us so proud and keep on sketching…and thanks ID Room for all the memories!!!

Making suggestions for later on details…

One most important thing about sketching I remind people are they are your personal notes to something that may become refined later on. I think a lot of people are apprehensive when it comes to sketching because what they draw doesn’t look exactly what they saw or what they imagine. Bringing and idea to completion takes time. Even the great masters took the time to plan and figure out how to get to the final piece of their work.

Sketching is a lot like note taking. You want to take as much as you can so you can go back to it for reference. You’ll most likely do more sketches after that to refine you idea. Below is a sketch of a droid I thought up quickly in my head. All the lines are merely suggestions of robotic and mechanical parts, nothing very specific, but just a quick and general idea. I can go back to this sketch to refine areas I want to later on to finalize the final idea of the droid. When sketching don’t draw the the details, make a suggestion of them, quick and fast.
