As a car designer, you can probably go your entire career without thinking about whats really inside of a car. There are lots of cool designers, and students doing things with "alternative power sources" but I've never seen anyone really focus on designing the system of infrastructure for these systems.
With that big introduction, here are some sketches of a battery exchange station for electric vehicles. Instead of charging a battery in the vehicle, the driver goes to a station like this and changes the empty battery in their vehicle for a full one. The batteries at the station charge, and illuminate when they are ready to make identification easy.

I've been brainstorming recently on the idea of an electric motorcycle, and the nI started thinking about the whole electric vehicle concept in general. It seems that the best way to do it is to have interchangeable batteries, where instead of "filling up", you change the battery of your vehicle.

I have been sketching the crap out of this car, and I think its getting somewhere. Im trying to master a soft pencil technique that I learned from some of my Soviet friends, Dima and Vadim. Remember the names- you will be hearing more about them someday....

What is the point of a blog? Its a great way to spend time that could be used for other things like cleaning your house, or doing your job. So to help you spend that time that would be better spent almost anywhere else, here is my first post. Its the first sketch of a yacht that I would like to work on. Im so tired of seeing these yachts sailing around the tropics with people enjoying the sun in thier bathing suits, so my concept is a boat for cruising the arctic. Its kind of a victorian era industrial boat with a little bit of imperfection and weathering. If I have more time, and I dont spend it on other peoples blogs, Id like to do a little more design on it and maybe a 3d model.
