Concept and Design

I do a lot of doodling. It’s the best way to workout an idea and keep it for the future. Some of my doodling I’ve turned into a coloring book series. Both downloadable and print. Part of the challenge is always finding themes that interest me and others. I always enjoy looking back through my old sketchbooks and finding kernels of ideas that I can expand on.

Doodling logos is always enjoyable. You have to do your research when creating a logo. There is always a story to tell and it can be an interesting journey to watch an idea take shape.

You can see some of my lunch doodles here. I try take a lot of photos on vacation which always makes for challenging drawings.

I also help work out ideas new cabinet designs for casino gaming and coin-op amusement games. Working with engineers my concept helped visualize new real-world machines.

Early concepts for a new Golden Teed Cabinet redesign. Working out the shape of the base console design.

Monitor Stand

We had heard a rummer that out in the field some bars were putting tables between the monitor and the console. I wanted to see what it might look like if we designed a table into it and made the game bigger social hub.

After some feedback from the field on our first version of the game cabinet I was working on concepts for for a larger, more flexible design. It could have a console or use a touch screen tv. The monitor could rotate to be horizontal or vertical. Graphics could easily be wrapped around the cabinet for a whole new look.

Sometimes even when I just hear someone talking about an idea images pop in my head of how it might look. These were some sketches for portable version of one of your gaming systems. The one on the left was a laptop version the a giant built in monitor. The one on the right was a console with retractable legs.

If I’m having lunch with other Artists we sometimes turn it into a sketch lunch and doodle I try to post them on Instagram and Flickr.
