I keep saying to myself that I should start drawing stuff again. I used to draw, not take photos.
I do a course in Industrial Design. Some of you are probably wondering what the hell that means. And NO I do not design industries…the amount of times i’ve been asked that kills me.
Also known as product design, Industrial design encompasses the things we use everyday from cars to mobile phones, furniture, the list goes on. I like to make it simple and say Industrial designers design anything that can fit inside a house or office. We are NOT architects.
From a young age i’ve always loved cars and by year 8 I decided that i wanted to become a car designer. I wanted to bring what I loved – drawing, cars and art together with something practical that could make a difference to other people and that you could actually make a career from. Heaps of people at school asked if I wanted to be an artist as a career.
But I came to the conclusion that unless you are in the top 0.01% of artists….most of them don’t really get anywhere with anything… awkward if you’re reading this and you’re an artist… But we’ll just assume you’re in that top 0.01%.
So, I love my art and design and to be honest I never EVER considered doing photography as something serious or something that i’d take a keen interest in.
But it seems the Asian Genes in me came out in 2011 when I started taking photos and editing them. And then January 2012 – Form&Function came around 🙂
So here are some old works from the first car proper attempted car drawing to recently – before the photography came around… I really need to get back to drawing….
The first proper car i tried to draw… Yr 7
I used to mod them as well. LOL
