Drawing Sweeps

October 10, 2018 — Leave a comment

I have used automotive sweeps for a long time to clean up my final drawings. I even use them on my digital equipment now. I have used them so much I had a few of them break after so much use. So I wanted to find a way to make another set for myself, I did that and I decided to share them with everybody in the design and art world. They have several various curves that help with your final sketches for product, automotive and concept design.  They work great with all digital products like the iPad and Cintiq monitors and actually increase your workflow speed. If you would like a set please go to my online store and get your pre-order in now and they will be shipped out the week of 10-22-18. I am knocking off $5 if you order them before I have full stock on 10-22-18. Buy your Drawing Sweeps here

Taking on Freelance

So recently I was asked to leave Fly Racing because they did not want to keep developing as much product. So on that note, I have decided to open my freelance business back up and take on projects. I have created a very small sampling of products I have done through the years. I have designed for several major companies and have done a wide variety of design work. If you’re interested in working with me please send me an email and I will get in contact with you to discuss your design needs.

This is a quick sketch out of my sketch book and is the result of committing to yes I am going to do it, not try to do it.

As any creative we get extremely busy at times and can get overwhelmed. One thing I have started to practice is removing the word “Try” from my vocabulary. By doing this Continue Reading…
