I have never underestimated the importance of sketching. Over this past year, I have carried at least one sketchbook and a litany of drawing and painting tools with me nearly every day. During lunch I will spend time drawing; sometime randomly but more often than not my next idea I want to paint.

This video was my first attempt at time lapse of drawing something. There are some logistical issues to work out while videoing while I am drawing, most notably, the camera is in your way but I like how this test turned out.

Beginning Fabrication

As a diversion, and to learn some new techniques, I have designed a Star Wars/Marvel mashup and have been painting a Stormtrooper helmet in the style of Iron Man’s helmet. Having never worked with vinyl as a medium, the process has been devoted to learning to paint and fabricate a physical product. There has been much that I have learned and more to paint and refine before I am finished, but here is the process thus far.
