I'm applying to the industrial design program at the Rhode Island School of Design for next fall and I had to do three drawings for my application.  The first had to be of a bike, the second of an interior or exterior environment and the third could be anything I wanted.  The first and third came out the best, because I did the third on the day the application was due. Wink

I'd love comments!  My theme was looking at things from another perspective.


Bike



Sorry for the awful quality of the photos.  I couldn't use flash because it reflected weirdly off the graphite.  Finished sizes are 16x20 (although the bike is 18x24 because the photo was taken before I trimmed it).  I took photos of my subjects first and then sketched from printouts.  I don't do well if my subjects move. Wink

Very nice. I just graduated from RISD's illustration department in 2006. I remember having to do the bike drawing and all. Isn't it sad that you are going to have to fold your drawings in half and half again? Good luck with your application, but judging from these drawings I wouldn't think you'd have any problems.

Thank you so much for your comments!  I've been so neurotic since finishing my application, so it's nice to hear from an alumn. Smiley

Yeah, the bike drawing was so hard.  It took about 10 hours!  I was super sad that I had to fold them, but to console myself, I paperclipped a 2.5x2.5" photo of the object from another angle after both folds, so they would know which was which when they were folded.  At least that made it "feel" nicer to fold them, if you know what I mean.

hmmm... I don't know! I've only ever met 2 people from industrial design. ID people have a reputation for never ever leaving their studios. Smiley ALWAYS working.

I'm moving back up to Providence in September myself, so maybe I'll see you around!
