A nephew sent me a birthday card, upon which he scribbled the little car you see on the left. I thought he would appreciate seeing his sketch reimagined as a detailed drawing, so I scanned his sketch and loaded it into my CAD software. My intent obviously was not to draft a realistic vehicle, but to simply give a more mechanical look to his drawing. When I was done, I scaled it to fill an 8″ x 10″ space, printed and framed it, and gave it to him for Christmas. I can tell you honestly, he was quite pleased.


By the way, “BXR-1” doesn’t really mean anything. The “B” comes from the boy’s name, and “XR-1” just sounded good.
