My interpretation of a cafe racer based on the Ducati Scrambler platform. I wanted to simplify the lines of the bike to give it a more 'traditional' cafe racer aesthetic. Lots of carbon fibre parts, Michelin tires, Ohlin rear shock, Yoshimura exhaust and a custom carbon fibre front and rear fairing.

Another quick sketch render of the Mclaren P1. Once again the aim was to produce a very quick drawing to show form with out going into any detail. Drawn in Photoshop with a small Wacom tablet.
Quick and rough ball point sketching practice.
A relatively quick render of a Classic Mini in teal blue. Drawn in Photoshop with a small Wacom tablet. One of my all-time favourite cars. Functional, practical, simple and answered the design brief of a small economical car for everybody.
A quick Wacom sketch render of the beautiful McLaren P1. The aim of this emotive sketch was to very quickly lay down colour using a rough paintbrush - rather than a refined drawing.
A small project I started to work away at in my spare time. I was wanting to design a small desk top lamp with a large retro styled incandescent light bulb. One day I will pick the project up again. I fabricated the steel stand which was then copper plated and clear coated with enamel.
A quick Wacom & Photoshop render of a Honda CB750 Cafe Racer for my good friend Logan Anderson (an Engineer for Toyota - Belgium). We used this render to conceptualise the colour scheme, seat upholstery and exhaust layout.

I've always loved marine design. The long aesthetic curves and functional beauty I find very interesting. Here is a quick page of sketching of various hull shapes drawn in ball point and ink pen.
A quick weekend render of a Ducati 1299 Superleggera turned into a cafe racer. It features a 848 gas tank, custom rear end, modified under fairing, carbon intake and a minimal headlight assembly.
While way out of my build budget, I thought it would be interesting to see what the concept would look like when put down on screen.
Rendered in Photoshop CC with a Wacom tablet.
To design and build my own classic wooden speed boat has always been a dream of mine. One day when I have the space, time and funds I plan to start a project something like this. There is something about the 1950's/60's speed boat aesthetic I find so beautiful.
An assortment of quick sketching with ball point and ink.
A quick little concept render for my 1978 Honda CX500 cafe racer/brat build I built. This render was to test the sub-frame design, paint colours and general aesthetic. A combination of photos and Photoshop wacom rendering.

Super fast and simple sketch of a 65 VW Bug. Sketched in Photoshop with a Wacom tablet.
The Honda Ruckus was bought into production by Honda in 2003 as a simple rugged scooter. Since it's introduction the Ruckus has gained a massive cult following in the custom modified scene. I threw together this quick sketch together as a bit of fun. See the below picture of a 'standard' Honda Ruckus. Drawing done in Photoshop with a Wacom tablet.
