Wow! The Bailong Elevator...


Summer brake is dangerous. Mind starts to wonder in all kinds of directions. Little tribute to Marcos. Brand that ceased to exist several years ago. I always liked them for their funky styling.
I consider it work in progress and intend to come back to it...

Apparently, Mercedes-Benz is opening a product studio. SO I started doodling this folding toothbrush as a joke but then I though that this might actually be pretty cool. All aluminum folding brush wish silicone inserts, Mercedes logos everywhere. ...

New York trip was fun. This wasn't my first time in NY but it seemed like I enjoyed it the most. Instead of going to Time Square and places like that we spent time in Greenwich Village, Brooklyn. At the end we went to time square and got the tickets for the South Pacific musical. Good show by the way.
Checked out couple museums. Cooper-Hewitt design museum - was interesting and reminded me student show at school. Also went to Guggenheim. I liked it a lot. Not too big interesting architecture and good mix of modern and classic art. Really liked crazy architectural paintings by Julie Mehretu: Grey Area. And finally learned the story behind Malevich Black Square. That was his interpretation of Existential being like God. On his show where he presented Black Square for the first time he put it in the left corner where Russian orthodox Christians placed icons.
Took a sketchbook with me and sketched whenever had an opportunity. Enjoyed randomness of the pages as I never new what I was going to sketch next. Mostly people on the subway and some of them slippy. I wonder how many of the new I was sketching them...

Right after the show I had to make a crazy road trip to
Pittsburgh and back. Left in the car about 7 pm and at 3:50am was on the greyhound bus back to Detroit. For some reason I always enjoy traveling by Greyhound buses. I think I like the people I meet. This time I meet a girl who came from Moscow to work at Cedar point park. What a strange coincidence...


This Tuesday may 11 CCS did an early student show opening for some companies. Me and some other juniors showed our work along with seniors. It was an interesting experience to show your work not just for instructors to grade it but for companies to generate some interest.

Little Mercedes exterior interior project. It is not finished yet. I am happy with the side view but will work on the front. Need to do more sketches of the interior to explain better my idea. For the door I am thinking sliding door.
