Drawings

Here are a few drawings from this year. It's fun to move elements around and see if anything shakes out. Sometimes it does as is the case with the tool that would eventually become known as the FunnyBone. You can see where I was playing around with names for it before settling on FunnyBone....



Other tools don't end up being made such as the Nessie or Kelpie. I did some later actual protos of Kelpies in which I shrunk the knife down to keychain size but it's still very much a design in progress.



This is a drawing for a new knife called The Fixer which will debut in Fall 2008...I really love this little utility tool. At 3.5 inches in length it's a nice size and the combined utility of the cutting edge and the handle wrenches make it one of my more interesting pieces I think.



Lastly, we see the continued evolution of elements of the SharkTooth model from Spring 2008 in the RingThing which is about to be released in September.

love The Fixer! maybe the middle finger groove could be a small screwdriver, which would make it flat instead of kinda pointy which it looks like it is now? hope its beefy!
