We've had this on here before, but this thread is an opportunity to repeat ...

Artist Gianluca Gimini took people's drawings of bikes and converted them into realistic CGI renderings

And even had some real bikes made up

I've heard of this as one of those sort of bollocks personality tests in job interviews. You ask someone to do it against the clock and without thinking. Apparently the more 'masculine' your brain, the more functional you will make it, adding brakes and shifters and stuff, while more 'feminine' your brain, the prettier you will make it, with maybe tassels on the handlebars, a rider or some background like a road or town or whatever.

Like I said, probably bollocks though.

Probably because they don't use spray paint, they use that gloopy stuff that is put on with a roller. Presumably because it lasts longer.

Carrying stencils all the different signs and symbols would probably add to the hassle and time for a road painter.

However I am no expert in road painting, so that is just a guess.
Stencils you say? Pah!
