I Draw Cars Answered

Via Notcot, and because I've been looking out for this sort of thing recently (Roger-X is deciding between design-related university courses), I came across a Kickstarter project called I Draw Cars.

It's a pair of guys, design graduates, who have put together an automotive design resource in a moleskine format - industry references, event data, and templates over which you can sketch your own ideas to form part of your portfolio.

It looks good.  Certainly the concept is sound.

I wonder if others would think so?


On a related subject, whilst visiting Wales, we landed in a design exhibit at the National Waterfront Museum in Swansea.  Projects were on display from students of the School of Industrial Design in Swansea.

I could go through them, but they were all fascinating - everything from a pop-up cup-carrier to a collapsible zimmer frame and a hydroplaning sports car.

Instead, I'll list our highlights, in no particular order:

An interesting take on wheeled luggage.

A "hyper amphibian".

A Dyson-branded scooter.

School bookshelves.

A cool take on Landrover.

Hydroplaning yacht.

A hotrod.

There were others, but they did not display their websites, or have a small pile of business cards for folk to take.  That's their loss, since part of their course covers "self promotion"...


The forums are retiring in 2021 and are now closed for new topics and comments.

Dear Kiteman, I hope Roger-x finds himself a course best suited to his talent. Personally I'm not for sketching over templates. It makes it more difficult to develop one's own style in the long run, I think. It reminded me of a pic in E.H. GOMBRICH'S eye opener : ART&ILLUSION which I'll try & add. I strongly advise anyone interested in ART to read BETTY EDWARDS' DRAWİNG ON THE RİGHT SIDE OF THE BRAIN. I wish him & you good luck.
