American Motor Drome and the Wall of Death. And a woman named Sam who rides a ’31 Indian.
Hitting the pages of the WSJ means something. In this case that motorcycles have blipped the radar of the rich and lovely. A couple of nice pics and some commentary.
BMW goes with black and white graphics and a splash of red to promote the S1000RR. The designer hasn’t a clue. To wit: “We wanted to avoid the typical manga style, as it wasn’t aggressive enough to portray the personality of the S1000RR.” Not sure how such nice work could have come from someone with such a limited knowledge of the work of so many talented manga illustrators.
Kimi Raikkonen has one foot in the door of the WRC. ’nuff said.

Benja Harney makes paper art for advertising and editorials. These wings became part of a Hermes Christmas window display. Lots more work on his blog.
Another Hermes window display. A video image of an actress blows on the real scarf which gently sways. The illusion is lovely.
I’m saving up my quarters for a 50mm lens that I can crank all the way up (down?) to 1.4f, This collection of images shows why I’ve got glass lust. (SFW)
Happy very chilly Monday my dears.
