I've been working on some analog sketching recently especially forcing myself to practice some marker work. This is the most I've done with them to date but I had a lot of fun experimenting with them.

These sketches were replies to Weekly Design Challenges on Instagram @weeklydesignchallenge for a hand mixer and hammer design.They do weekly subjects and repost some of their favorite submissions and it's been a lot of fun to see the sketches everyone comes up with!

Hey everyone, quick update, I just moved to Chicago where I'm going to be enrolled in the Master of Design in Industrial Design Program at University of Illinois at Chicago aka UIC starting in a few weeks. Totally excited, I can't wait! Huge thanks to all of you who contributed to this journey and help me on to this path, I'm very grateful!! :D

Now that the move is complete (phew) I'm getting back to sketching so here are a few of the latest.

A ring flashlight/lantern for the backpacking crew, cast in magnesium to make it lightweight and so you could use it as a fire starter in an emergency by cutting a few magnesium shavings off the body.

Thanks a lot Michael! Looking forward to your Keynote at SQ1CON!

Here's a page of guitars I did for the Weekly Design Challenge. I love sketching music gear.

Hi everyone, design school has been amazing and really busy, but in the best way. I wanted to share some of the sketches from SQ1CON at UIC in Chicago. I learned so much from this weekend, too much to summarize, but I wanted to focus on 2 things I took away from the conference.

1. Aspire to design everything, even if you're not an expert in the specific industry.
2. Don't limit yourself to sketching things you like, sketch things you're not comfortable with.

With this in mind, here are some first attempts at Architecture and Footwear design. I'm a little embarrassed that this is the first time I've tried sketching these topics but I want to document them here and improve.
