Sketches, Doodles & Drawings... Submission [Two]


Whilst rummaging through some boxes I came across drawings from my yonder-years (created between 1992-97). Most images were made by hand, using a combination of various manual techniques such as pastels, colour-pencils, charcoal and paint.. The themes included are varied and somewhat non-specific, however, 'Frau Peppercorn' is a, never realized, design which I do remember fondly. The last set of images included below were made by computer during my architectural studies at the AA, using predominantly Photoshop, but even these still retain a manual feel in their execution.

Above and Below - A (strangely enough) never realized design, called 'Frau Peppercorn', for a pepper-mill in the shape of a skirted lady, whose head had to be turned (nodded, shaken...) to disperse pepper onto the condiment needing meal placed below her skirt...
