I’ve been playing with it for months on my iPhone, but now it’s gone public – Autodesk’s Sketchbook Mobile is coming to the app store. A fantastic addition to the digital designer’s workflow, this is the drawing app you’ve been waiting for if you’re a professional designer or digital artist. Check out Carl Alviani’s article […]
Autodesk sent out a press release yesterday about all the love it’s getting in the Mac community, and guess what? They quoted me. As “a creator of iconic technical illustrations” Nice. Thanks Autodesk.
Car magazine has long been one of my most cherished and revered sources of car news, photographic inspiration and cutting-edge design. Published in the UK, I have been spending my hard-earned cash on the import-priced glossy loveliness for almost 20 years now. Not anymore. Car has gone and done the unthinkable—they’ve dumbed down the design […]
Just jealous. One of my former classmates at Art Center, Karim Habib, just jumped ship from BMW to Mercedes to “oversee” their Advanced Studio in Stuttgart.

I’ll be adding current projects, twits, insights and anything else that comes to mind in shorter, more concise […]
Thank God WordPress has finally brought their dashboard into the 21st century. Using the old one was one of the main reasons I wasn’t blogging.
I’ve always said that you can tell a lot about a person by the car they drive. Whether you like it or not, even the blandest car makes a statement about who you are and how you live. Very rarely would you be surprised by a slick salesman in a Honda Civic or a hippy […]
At first glance it looks like a Murcielago that’s been made-up by NBC to be KITT on the new Knight Rider series (they’re really doing that). But it’s not. So maybe some tacky one-off designed for the Sultan of Brunei? Close. It’s the Reventón, Lamborghini’s newest trick to separate attention seeking rich men from their […]
