MAKE-regular Dug North gets interviewed at Maker Faire!
Thank you for sharing Dug North’s art. It was cool to hear that he skips the computer aided design, and relies on his own drawings.
CAD would be a totally legit (even wise) approach. Using my hands is just more fun for me.
I’ve also found that in working physical models, I see things I could never have deliberately designed. The way the strongman quivers, as if straining to pull the monster, is one example. I saw that while experimenting with a 2D cardboard prototype of the figure, playing with it like a puppet of sorts. I may have discovered this eventually, but I don’t think it is something I would have come upon while at the computer.
