We’ve featured Mikael’s work on our site in the past, but a new personal project of his is simply a site to behold. Mikael shared his experiment and inspiration in a recent forum post, providing an eye feast of images rendered up in KeyShot with a generous helping of his signature style and some others take us along his visual exploration.
Entering the Lab
If you’ve seen Mikael’s site, you know he has a unique approach to the wide range of subject matter he takes on. He explains the background on this project on the forum.
Every now and then I try to make time for a personal project, to strengthen my brand and evolve as a designer. By entering my own lab, I can experiment with new techniques, workflows and indulge in an area that inspires me. It is very useful to go into the gym and define certain muscles even more. Creativity must be fun, it must be a positive challenge – something that triggers you to continue to work hard. Cause it sure is hard work. Everyone working in the creative industries have different ways to get back to the starting point that once made us decide on this as a career. It is so important to recognize your own triggers. Sometimes you get one of those ideas that simply needs to be born and realized in some way. This is one of those.
His blog has black and white shots of the Coupe that you’ll want to check out, with some additional detailed shots of the engine. Thanks again to Mikael for sharing his work and inspiration.
