Rucker 13

This is an idea I have. I created it as a Steampunk motorcycle, but it turned out to be more Art Deco than anything. The sketch is a rare glimpse into my pocket sketchbook. Not because it’s a mysterious enigmatic repository for my deepest secrets, but more because I usually draw at my desk or in my larger sketchpad. I carry the pocket sketchpad just in case I have an idea. It’s also a place to park quotes I find interesting and my grocery list.

I enjoy drawing mechanical objects a lot. I like to imagine how systems fit together and what they look like. In this case, I was more concerned with the systems than the overall look (hence, Art Deco vs. Steampunk).
