Today I am posting a scanned page from my sketchbook. These are quick “thumbnail” sketches of mountain bikes. Since I sketched all of these just for fun, they don’t all look like they would necessarily work in the real world. Come to think of it, the furniture and lighting ideas that I sketch everyday as part of my real job don’t always make sense either. I guess that is the beauty of sketching. Putting ideas quickly on paper is the only way to evaluate them to see if they are worth exploring further. Computer renderings and modern CAD and modeling packages are great, but thinking on paper with a good old-fashioned pencil is always the place to start.
