The Sherlock kids wheelbarrow is now avaliable for Christmas.
Ian Wong from ejo design was commissioned to design a child's version of Australia's leading wheelbarrow brand - Sherlock. Ian asked me to do some concept sketches which I did using sketchbook pro on the wacom tablet. Innovative features like the front bumper, soft handle grips, and the use of the foot to lean the product against a wall for storage were adopted from the sketches in the final design. The overall proportions are critical to make a child version reflect the full size product. These quick sketches allow a designer great flexibility to refine the geometry and proportions before CAD modelling. Ian and Charles , one of our RMIT graduates, did mockups and preliminary 3D models always referring back to these original concept sketches. Ian and Ross Williams worked on the production detailing and tooling CAD files. A great team effort.

Hi All,I discovered if I sketched too quick with the inkling when I opened it in sketchbook designer the fast scribble line would be compressed so you need to slow down.It was fine as a vector line in the original DWG file as you can see on the left sketch of one of my Border Collies Mikado.
