How do you draw cars?

A lot of people go to the museum, and it gets confusing looking at the vehicles they put up. So I do all my drawing with a camera on a tripod.

What makes these different than the ordinary ones?

I always try to look at these cars as being like my own car, in a way – so it always has the same style. I like to do my own thing and have fun. I take that on full display with the cars that I draw. I also have this big collection of the most famous and influential cars. We have Maseratis, Ferraris and Jaguars, you name it, I got all these.

In your latest work you have a new concept, the “Honeycomb” car. Can you tell us more?

Yes, this particular project was designed by a Brazilian car designer, Fernando Pereira. It would be a supercar, with a honeycomb design and all that. I was on the design of the original concept. This is the first time I drew a honeycomb car, it’s really a surprise. The designers had a lot of ideas with shapes, angles and colours, but I was very happy with the combination of the honeycomb design and what Fernando had planned – just a nice, classy car. I always tell the story to people – people get really interested when they see something I put together that’s a bit different from other ideas. It’s about finding your own thing and you can’t find a lot of those in this world. So it’s a chance for me to show it off to people that you can do something special.

A new study out of the University of Iowa has found that when people hear an unfamiliar word — which is why you tend to hear it from others — their reaction to it changes. The study also suggests that the change in reaction could be used to help people better understand the way we speak. A follow-up of the study appears in the Journal of Experimental Psychology: Learning, Memory, and Cognition.

The researchers asked 26 young adults to use either a short clip of themselves speaking English or Spanish. When listening to their own speech, participants were primed to hear words they had heard while speaking, but not in the first recording. When they listened to
