WTF – Rendered Bad Bike Drawings

by 4

Gianluca Gimini in Bologna had an unusual idea. He went around random members of the public, and got them to draw a bike from memory. Lots and lots of people did.

And lots and lots of people got it wrong.

Gianluca took the most interesting ones, and he rendered them in photorealistic computer-o-vision…

Barney Marsh takes the word ‘career’ literally, veering wildly across the road of his life, as thoroughly in control as a goldfish on the dashboard of a motorhome.

He’s been, with varying degrees of success, a scientist, teacher, shop assistant, binman and, for one memorable day, a hospital laundry worker. These days, he’s a dad, husband, guitarist, and writer, also with varying degrees of success. He sometimes takes photographs. Some of them are acceptable.

Occasionally he rides bikes to cast the rest of his life into sharp relief. Or just to ride through puddles. Sometimes he writes about them. Bikes, not puddles.

He is a writer of rongs, a stealer of souls and a polisher of turds.

He isn’t nearly as clever or as funny as he thinks he is.
