KARR in Sketches: The story behind the design

KARR Conceptual Art 1

John Eaves, best known as a designer for Star Trek creating the look for vehicles like the Enterprise E, shares an interesting story on his blog today. If you hadn't known, John was tapped by Richard Toyon the production designer of Knight Rider 2008. His task was to design the transforming version of KARR that was created for for Knight to King's Pawn.

Last year the old “Knight Rider” TV show from the 80’s was re-invented and had a short one season run as a new series, and sadly it died away right when it was getting it’s bearings and the cast was getting into their roles. During that time I got a call from Richard Toyon, the production designer on the show to come over and work on the Karr designs with him!! It was great fun to work on an old favorite show, and it was a treat to work with Richard.

Be sure to visit John's blog Eavesdropping with Johnny for an interesting story and additional conceptual sketches.
