Ben Collins, perhaps best known as The Stig on BBC’s Top Gear, has a new book out in the UK today entitled How To Drive – The Ultimate Guide From The Man Who Was The Stig. I had the pleasure of working with Mr. Collins to create some instructional illustrations to help explain some of the concepts in his book.
Topics covered range from the fundamentals like sitting posture, hand placement and visualizing potential hazards, to more – um – practical instruction like how to skid 180° into a parallel parking space.
It was an honour to work with Ben and to have a chance to swap stories with an automotive icon, like driving an Aston Martin for James Bond, or beating on a rented Hyundai Accent (guess whose story is whose). Hopefully the book will see a North American release soon!
