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…)

Congrats Joey!

I put together this little montage for my brother Joey, who just recently graduated Cogswell Polytech!   The school held a nice dinner for the graduates and had these comment cards at each table….Joey and I decided to sketch on them while we ate dinner!  Way to go bro, you did an amazing job in school and im so proud of you!  Time to take on the concept design world, i know that you are going to make mom and dad so proud!

Found some old prismacolor pencils…

I was at a garage sale last weekend and noticed this really cool box.  Walked up to check it out and I quickly realized that it was something really cool!  The “prismacolor” writing and funky color boxes on the side attracted my eye.   When I opened the box, I found 6 packs (of a dozen each) of Prismacolor pencils called a “half gross”.  Each box is marked “EAGLE: Thick Lead Color Pencils”…. I opened one of the boxes and found mostly brand NEW prismas!  The wood seemed really hard, and more like real wood.  The Typography on the side, was totally different, much more of the period they are from…im guessing the late 60’s early 70’s ( judging the colors, type and wear of the packaging).

You can cut the back of this packaging off, mail it along with .25 cents to order really early prismacolor markers!

I sharpened a few of them and noticed that the wood was much stronger, the lead alot stronger and really took a good point!

Decided it was time to sketch something out…a few of my favorites from Finding Nemo!  Go Sharks!
