This is very cool man! Very aggressive yet pleasing looking retro vehicle design, love the pipes on the sides
I'm rather fond of retro deco aesthetics myself but my work is less steampunk in theme and more retro deco futurism. There's no question there was a sense of pure artisan driven craftsmanship in the aesthetics of the 20-40s. I'll take a deco bakelite radio over modern radios any day.
You're very welcome, it's just a really stylish retro design. Yeah I'm a huge fan of that period as well, it really was a nexus of many visual schools of thought coming together in one period. It seems a lot of interesting things came from that period as film noir is also one of my favorite cinematic styles as well
Also I see now you were part of WETA workshop, back in the day, and worked on some amazing films. Granted I don't know precisely what kind of fellow/boss Mr. Jackson is but I get the impression he's utterly sincere about the creative process,an artist friendly guy, and clearly is really a big genre fan (I can only assume he's a nice guy to work with too). He seems to have created a special studio in WETA that I would hope was a fun place to work. This much I do know, the work on film has been wonderful stuff so I tip my hat to you good sir
Well, thank you kindly - working at Weta Workshop was a great experience, and one of the best things about it was learning a hell of a lot from the design team I was a part of, many of whom have become great friends, and at least a couple of whom lurk around these very virtual parts...
Hey! Thanks - yeah, there are some pretty terrific examples out there when you start looking. Still, don't think I'd like one as my day to day transport... could get a bit cold and wet here in Welly - and the leather helmet would play havoc with my 'do.
