The projects I build all start with a pen and ink concept drawing (now digital). This drawing is my way to work out many of the challenges. Even so it is kept loose – all freehand in order to allow lots of ‘wiggle room’ to facilitate the addition of new and better ideas as the build begins. The Institute for Study of Mechanical Fish challenge sign is no different. Today I spent a little time woking up the final concept drawing. Even as I worked my ideas changed. Not everything was noted on the drawing for as I begin creating the files and then modelling the sign things will continue to change – right up to the final stroke of paint. There will be lots of fun surprises along the way.
