Ok, I’ve been critical in this blog and on Twitter for a while now about what I perceive as Ford’s missed opportunity with the Fiesta Movement. I’ve said that they dragged their feet too long with the US-spec car and lost their momentum. I’ve said they put too much chrome on the US-spec car (I […]
So last year I dropped the ball on my Christmas card. It was the first time in years that I didn’t produce something worthy of public consumption and it’s been buggin me ever since. This year will be different. I’ve started early and I’m feeling good about it. Already have the setting and the car […]
Ok, so this is really just a repeat of my Jalopnik comments from last week, but I wanted a chance to reiterate in public what I see as the clear vision for where FIAT and Sergio Marchionne are planning on taking Chrysler in Wednesday’s announcement. I may be completely wrong, but that’s what blogs nobody […]
I’ve been watching Apple’s design for a long time. Besides being the products that I personally choose to interact with the world on (desktop/laptop/phone), they have obviously been trend-setters in industrial and consumer electronics design since possibly the launch of the original transparent iMac in 1998. And although I love their products for many reasons, […]
I’ve been following Ford’s Fiesta Movement from the beginning. In fact, not only did I consider putting my name in the hat to participate, I was already directly or indirectly following several of the final 100 chosen via blogs or Twitter.

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.
Inspired by Jorge Colombo’s cover of the June 1, 2009 issue of The New Yorker, I did a quick sketch in my living room using the Brushes app on my iPhone. Although it’s far from cover-worthy, it is fun to play with and a great tool for forcing looseness into your sketching.
With everything that’s been happening in Abruzzo recently, I’ve been thinking a lot about Teramo. I have lots of friends I made when I lived there that I still keep in touch with through Facebook, and I spoke to my cousins after the earthquake to make sure everyone was ok (they are, even the ones […]
Ok, these aren’t really coming in order, but I thought I’d post my favorite recent sketch next. This is a morning sketch of my office after a night on the sofa. Still just getting back into the groove of sketching with a rollerball in a sketchbook. It’s been so long. Sketch is done with a […]
