VPV LM competition entry

The VPV (version 2.0) Local Motors Competition Entry

Local Motors latest competition is the Active Lifestyle Vehicle Challenge. There's 82 validated entries and I decided to join in. Here's my entry. It was a fun competition with so many cool features you can add to this type of vehicle. There's only about 4 days left to vote as of this posting. If you're interested in checking it out here's a link to my design where you can vote.

And of course here's a few images.

Motive Kestrel Physical Prototype

More Kestrel shots

This must be the Kestrel's final resting place. She's in Winnepeg Manitoba at the Composites Innovations Centre if anyone happens to be in the neighbourhood, ha. Looks cool in silver.

Customs Factory Custom Mustang

Louie Dietz of Customs Factory Mustang Project

My good friend Louie Dietz got me involved on his Mustang project. With his input I was able to come up with clean, sporty updated look to his 67' Mustang Fastback. Can't wait to see this one in the flesh. Sounds like he'll be going with the 'Grabber Blue'.

My A-Surface CAD work on the 2013 GTA Bravado Banshee

Just recently I had the privilege of working on the 2013 GTA Banshee for Rockstar Games and West Coast Customs. Here's a link to Rockstar's article
Here I am at West Coast Customs just before they put the final rims on the car. Very cool to see her come from the screen to real life. Louie Dietz of Customs Factory got me involved with WCC and I was hired to do the task of taking the GTA game data and marrying that to a 2008 Dodge Viper chassis. We also had scan data of the Viper and decided to keep the greenhhouse of the Viper as it was pretty close to the Banshee and much easier than producing all new glass and structure. I did a few CAD renders earlier on in red as well.
 In the screenshot you can see the light blue is all the new surface data I created...

...and here's the real deal.

The Kestrel - Bio Composite (hemp) paneled car

This is possibly the last look at where our little Kestrel car ended up. It was a good run and some various groups were able to do some good research on the hemp material panels.

Infinite Shoes "Solo"

Inspiration taken from sandals and espadrille style shoes. We found a manufacturing process that allows you to print custom sole graphics under a clear sole rubber so the graphics won't wear away as the rubber sole gets worn. 
Scroll down to the 'Caliber' Posting for more info on the shoes.

Infinite Shoes "Serenity"

Inspiration taken from piano and music notes. This is the most formal of the designs.

Infinite Shoes "Sea Flat"

For the women's line of shoes we did 3 styles as well. Inspiration for these was taken from Sandals and the espadrille style of shoes. These ones are perfect for the beach and have nice woven canvas detail along the sole walls. Many canvas flats suffer from stretching, but the 3 layers of canvas here will help in keeping these from stretching too much.
