(Studio is a loose term for where I make art, if one considers the place they sleep, fuck and write their “studio”, then why yes this is my studio! ) After these drawings, we took parts of those drawings and made prototypes. This proved to be a trying project for me. I can’t seem to think in 3-D form, I came up with these cool sketches that I found incredibly difficult to come to life.
