Meglev

“It actually looks like a real comic book.” – Justin Tomchuk

Well, I sure hope it will. Here’s some lineart for a meglev car in one of the panels. There are several ideas out there on what is futuristic, but since it’s a world I am making up and not really based on reality – things can look however I want. I love the tacky designs from the 80s, design from the Alien movies, and Japan’s ideas about technology and the future. I’m not so inspired by the present futuristic designs, which are really sexy, smooth, and curvaceous. I’m very much attracted to making things look spacious and angular.

A meglev car is based on the meglev trains being designed in Japan, which are trains that are propelled by magnetism. Using magnets prevents wasted speed and energy due to friction. They look pretty freaking cool.
