Getting my hand back, finally.

Yes, it's about cars again. I've been trying and re-trying to start drawing again, but I was never totally satisfied with the results. Okay, the fact that my "design world" stopped turning in early 90's when I stopped using too much of my time for drawing is one thing. What was worrying me was the fact I - as I had often contemplated - "lost my hand". I had a certain idea in my head, sometimes also pretty well formed and thought over, but when I tried to put in on paper, it was one big fail after another.

And that's the reason this drawing is rather important for me. I got one of those ideas in my head - this time it was thinking how I'd love to see next little Alfa Romeo to look like - and I was able to follow the idea with my hand. I decided not to paint/shade/destroy it, so I will just leave in its sketch phase. I am really, really satisfied that I am slowly getting my hand back. In this case it was a rather complex front end that made me happy.

Yes, it might sound silly, but it's sort of a big thing for me. :)

That and Angry Birds. LOL

Lovely work, T!

This seems like a really nice update of the Brera, one of my faves!
(I would still love to find out what you might come up with as far as a new interpretation of the venerable 130 coupé)

Well, I had something smaller in mind, like Mito.

Okay, 130 will be my next (blogged) project. Promise! :)

Ohhh... I forgot about the Mito. We don't get new Alfas here after all.

Your interpretation is much better.

I always thought the Mito was trying too hard to be 'cute'....

Yes, and - for Mito - it seems like too much design on a car that's just a bit too small for all of that.

We all have things that "sound silly" but are important to us. :)

Have you ever thought about actually sending your designs off to the car companies themselves!!!. You never know - it might be a new calling for you!</p>

I saw my first Peugeot CRZ (I think?) AND the new Range Rover Evoque yesterday.... Oh my - both such lovely, but outrageous expensive (especially the Evoque) cars!!!

Dom... I am 41 LOL

Hardly something waiting to be discovered. LOL

Yes, CRZ and Evoque are totally wonderful.

And totally expensive.

Sigh :)
