Volvo 122s: Duck Take II

Another Duck Volvo is in concept phase! Do you remember the La Carrera Panamericana winner car (Historic A PanAm Class) from 2008 for which I provided the design? Here are the first rough design tests for a new car. This time, it's South Africa based Jason Theunissen's beautifully restaurated Volo 122s. I'll keep you posted about the progress...

NOUN A Paperwalker | Paperwalkers (Plural)

NOUN a paperwalker | paperwalkers (pl.)
VERB to paperwalk | paperwalked | paperwalked
paperwalking | paperwalks

This here below was the original idea for The Paperwalker Journal's titles; at the end I decided to go with just one of the characters; the mesomorphic one remained unfinished.

Shapes

In my animation design work (in the early stages of a production) I focus not so much on clean-up pieces but more on fast rough sketches which deploy new shapes and volumes combinations.

Per Dybvig

Norwegian artist Per Dybvig is one of those very artists who have a special place in my head's "admiration centre". Looking at his work is always an inspirational adventure.
