the apprentice

Designer Robert Perry shares the SA feel-good story of the week…

I have B.J.Porter’s son here at that shack for two weeks. We have been corresponding by email for about a year and now he is here staying with me so I can teach him the tricks of the trade.

I have decided to start him out with some good ol’timey hand drafting. Just like the guys in Alden’s and Rhodes’ and S&S and Tripp’s offices did. Real men, smoking pipes and wearing vests. Ok, I won’t make Will smoke a pipe. Not yet anyway. We started this morning at 6am. We have been hard at it. Here is Will fathoming the mysteries of spline weights and splines. I figure he won’t. learn this anywhere else and down the line it will help him with curves on the compooter.

Jump in a see the kid at work.
