Sometimes I like to go back to basics and just observe simple shapes and sketch them.
For this, I was looking at radiused corners on objects, and how to represent the fillets with linework.

Nice stuffy Rei. I do the same thing, often without thinking while in long conference calls or meetings. My peers across functions have come to realize I'm listening most when I'm idly doodling ;-)

Nice as always all! Rsuzuki, I also love playing with the basic shapes. You may have seen it already but if not, you might be into Yo Kobayashi's beautiful form studies (http://www.coroflot.com/yoxkobayashi/CO ... N-OF-FORMS).

Trying to get into trains!

Yes, Kobayashi's form exercises are sweet. :)
I've always been interested in train design. I think it was Mitooka Eiji (check out his work), who said how designing the interiors of train is fascinating as it involves creating an entire enclosed environment—on wheels. They have more in common with architectural interiors than automotive interiors. You have to account for personal space, comfort, bathrooms, luggage space, etc. On top of that, usually trains can afford more room than aircraft interiors.

I love looking at mechanical connections and recently I went to an airfield to look at helicopters and other rotorcrafts. Looking at them up close is adrenaline pumping.

Thanks Jon! I remember briefly talking to you at the IDSA conference (don't remember if it was Seattle or Boston...), you did a talk on ADHD designers and Calvin and Hobbes—awesome. :)

Thanks! Some of his interiors are wild!
