About five days a week I do tight rendering at work, so I really felt like doing some looser stuff on the weekend. I ran into this Japanise artist called Dice Tsutsumi while browsing through the Toy Story 3 book the other day and was really inspired. He's technique is out of this world and the characters are simply awesome. While wondering through the book store I also ran into this book called "the rules of simplicity" which got me thinking, what are the real essentials in vehicle design? It sometimes that we're just adding features to provoke or to be different, but can this trend be aestheticly sustainable...
