One thing I certainly don’t possess is a talent for drawing. In Arts & Crafts, I’d usually draw some miniature figures on a massive piece of paper – the rest of the sheet was designated to be sky. My art teacher was rarely impressed by the final outcome (where ‘rarely’ is the overstatement of the century). I don’t really mind that drawing isn’t one of my strong suits, and I was certainly never ambitious enough to learn it properly. However, during dull lessons (and later lectures and seminars), I’d sometimes make amateur attempts at drawing cars. Don’t ask me why – I should have probably started with something more manageable. Stick figures maybe. The outcome was usually as poor as you’d expect. These days, I don’t have to attend lectures anymore, but I was still excited to read about the very cool project ‘I Draw Cars’, which teaches you the basics of car design. I have uploaded some pictures of the book above and below. At the very bottom you’ll also see what my current level of drawing cars is – it took me the better part of an hour, so I’m guessing that I can only get better (and that I clearly have too much free time on my hands…).
