Kris creates life-like computer renderings of custom vehicles. Combining state of the art technology with his creative inspirations. He’s a Ford Award winner and has contributed to numerous SEMA Show project builds. He took the time to tell us a little bit more about exactly what it is he does, and how SEMA has changed his business.

1) Can you tell us a little bit about the process you take when developing a rendering? Are there any rituals in your process you undertake to get inspired (ie listen to specific type of music, use a standing computer desk, etc)?

I always say that I’m not very “artsy-fartsy” as one of my favorite instructors used to put it. I don’t have a specific process for getting inspired and as clichéd as it may sound, I believe that an artist should be able to be inspired by anything and everything around them. Listening to music is probably one of the best ways I can clear my head and focus, but sometimes it takes going for a walk or a swim to get my head in the mood to work on a particular project.
