I have spent a couple of months working on a range of roasted coffees with my roasters and blenders. The selection process was arduous (read fun and excellent) – tasting loads of blends and making selections based on tasting notes, acidity and punchy-ness. 3 blends were selected and are now available as part of the … Continue reading
My first 5 handshaped boards, of many to come. I see these as Artisan boards – creatively imagined and meticulously crafted.
After shaping and surfing my first board (and consequently selling it in the same day I put it online), I decided to shape myself another board. I think my boards are to pro shaped boards what craft beer is to Heineken. I got an order for a 6’0 Fish – based on my first board’s … Continue reading
I recently had to do a project for a petrochemical company. Their range of lubricants are vehicle specific and for the different types of products I modelled generic vehicles that could be used for the graphics. Basic wireframe rendered models, nothing fancy.
I handshaped my first surfboard under the Howitzer brand. a 6’8 diamond tail board that handles as good as it looks. Here’s the photos from blank to final. I am shaping customs on order, so if you are interested, give me a call or drop me a message.
I rendered up a couple of Hotrod pickups in coloured glass – looking pretty cool, so I thought I’d share them.
Brand ID and collateral for Dziko Fuels, a ‘green’ Bio Fuel and transport company based in Cape Town.
A quick model/render that I did to inspire a hotrod pickup build I am planning for the not-too-distant future. Its based on a 1929 Ford pickup.
Some designs originate from a place of pure imagination, some innovation, some boredom and some of necessity, as was the case with this design. BST (Blackstone Tec) has the lightest strongest motorcycle wheels available on the market today (not my claim – go and have a look at the tests – fricken awesome stuffs) – … Continue reading
I modeled from a couple of photos the steering wheel from the 09 or 2010 Mclaren F1 car. Here is the clay model, and then the fully textured model of the steering wheel.

The Howitzer Nürburgring wall light is based on the profile of the Nürburgring – a wall mounted CNC routed plywood light with hidden lighting that casts a halo on the wall it is mounted to.
The Howitzer HTTV (Highly transportable tactical vehicle) is designed to be a robust smaller tactical attack and defence vehicle. Designated to take the place of the current Hilux trucks in the Army’s arsenal, the Howitzer HTTV is designed around a triangulated chromo tubular frame for both safety of the crew and to make the vehicle … Continue reading
Keeping with my ‘let there be…’ light series, here’s my latest design for a concrete swivel head desk lamp.
Based on the ‘let there be…’ Concrete floorstanding lamp, the ceramic series comes in a light natural ceramic with a grayscale colour palette for the base. The lights stand at 650mm tall.
Concrete is a substrate that we rarely use raw uncovered in our houses, it is seen as extremely industrial and very robust, not what comes to mind when the words stylish and elegant comes to play. It is the material of choice for this floorstanding lamp, simple elegant shape and vibrant colour along with concrete … Continue reading
I decided to give you guys a wallpaper for the week – the Howitzer icon in carbon with some GT stripes in the Aston Martin AMV12 blue.
I entered fan art for NAG magazine and website – holding thumbs that they like it. http://www.nag.co.za/ Here’s the HQ version – makes kick ass wallpaper. NAG in Neon lights wall mounted. I suppose it could also make a very Afrikaans bedroom wall hanging sign…
‘Francisca’ was the name given to a short European throwing battle weapon (axe) during the Migration period. Due to the aggressive nature yet sophisticated look and feel of the Howitzer design short and medium length handle axes, the name seems fitting; also nothing beats the feeling of splitting a massive log cleanly in half with … Continue reading
Anarchy and poetry, method to madness, raw power and a blissfull ignorance of possible impending doom. These images comes to mind when paging through the racing history books, seeing race cars being pushed to the limits of both machine and driver. Very few things must be that invigorating, adrenaline pumping in your ears, heart … Continue reading
Re-visiting the Office or Boardroom chair – Carbon fibre Shell, and chassis, suspended wheels based on aviation landing gear. Shot peened black anodized hardware. The Seat is mesh wrapped injection molded soft urethane, with an anatomically shaped honeycomb design for comfort. Height and tilt adjustable. It’s called the Howitzer RS chair.
My take on the classic Trestle Table and a twist on the drawer side cabinet. Enjoy.
