Last night I worked in my studio with my teenage son. He worked on a 3D sketch of a bag he wants to create. He wants to be an industrial designer. On New Year’s Day 2014 we will be hitting the button for his common application to get into one of the design schools he is interested in attending—Pratt, Rhode Island School of Design, Drexel and Mass Art. So now it is time to create a portfolio. I doubted his desire to do this kind of work until I saw him sew and carefully consider his project last night. He has a steady hand with the sewing machine and a really interesting design eye. Isn’t life interesting?
