Portfolio is done, I'll either post it in it's entirety or a link on the blog, updates to work will be added onto the blog though. Feel free to look for new work whenever, I should be posting new stuff every few days, if not more frequently.
So, the stuff I've been doing lately is a bit conservative, I thought I'd ideate on a pod-bodied corner hugger for Cadillac, kind of an escape car for an extremely overworked owner, no distractions, just them, the car, and the cockpit. Obviously it would be a technical marvel, adaptive body panels, corner hugging abilities, full HUD, etc... Now, to make it 1 seat or 2?
Just quick ideation shilloettes, but I'm feeling #1+2 right now.
Wise words from my teacher, Marc Reisen. Stop comparing your projects to everything you've seen, otherwise they'll never be different. Thinking away from convention and away from pop culture is the only real way to create a unique product. Stop saying the car is going to be half TT, half CTS, stop saying it'll be like this, or you're going for that, because that's exactly what you'll get, something that's already been diluted by 17,000 comittees. Think away from the box, think for the future, and think for yourself.

Here's a more-so finished rendering of the Caddy, expect more soon, hopefully some interior stuff, sketches and maybe some sketch renders. Also, I got bored and decided to do a Mary Kay Cadillac, why? I don't know, it just happened and I don't know why, but I kinda like it, hahaha. Feel free to leave feedback.

So, as I look back on them, the last two sketches suck, so expect re-done versions of them soon. On a better note, I sketched this out today in class and like it a lot, this will probably be one of my directions that I present to GM. Basically this is going to have adaptive body panels, which will look kind of like bib scales. The car will be able to change shape depending on how the car is driving to improve economy and performance, it's going to be a pain to sketch with all of the panels deployed(for braking) but I think it'll totally be worth it.tell me what you think about it in the feedback.
Sketch-render coming soon.
