Ricochet prototype no. 01

first prototype for ricochet.
feeling so-so about the result. i'm diggin the design, and i found perfect materials, but the construction method turned out a little sloppy. i also miscalculated the strap length, so it's a little short.
next iteration will be up soon.

1954 Singer 306

my "new" 1954 Singer 306 sewing machine.
this thing is pure industrial design badassery.
now i'll be able to work on satchels + stuff once i head back to school. (first run of bags is in progress now, pics up soon)

merry christmas!

satchel progress : ricochet

satchel progress. i'm gathering materials and will begin the first production run shortly. i'll be making ricochet (seen above), tipping point, and at least one other.

also in the works are the x.y.z pots. i'm experimenting with mold techniques at the moment.

X.Y.Z modular potting system

Today I expanded on the 3x3 pot I did last night. The result is the X.Y.Z modular potting system. I think it has some cool possibilities for arrangement. I'm gonna try to make these if possible.

3x3 micro pot

small pot with three compartments.

i'm imagining it made out of concrete, maybe 8x8x6". small enough to fit on a desk.

my rendering programs are experiencing technical difficulties so i tried something different with this one.

more views and different pots on the way.

keeping with bizarro-sketch day, i did a render exactly how i don't do it normally....

wanted to try a super quick style. hard brush only, minimal shading, etc etc.

i'm gonna do a more detailed shopjob this weekend. wanna show my product render style
