In Good Company

Next week, I will return to my duties as a workshop host at the Nemoland Festival in Florence, Italy. This time, I'll focus on creation and inspiration. BTW, it seems like I am in good company there... :o)

Apropos, a great many of my vehicle designs are pretty much inspired by the legendary Dymaxion car and Ford's Lincoln Futura.

Apropos (2), this is a lecture which changed my life as an artist and I know it will work for you as well:

The sketch of the large workshop in this post is, I think, my all time favourite of yours - did this ever go further than a sketch? I'd love to see it!
