Back in the country and ready to serve up linky goodness.
We’re back at boys and girls.
If you dig Marisa Miller, vintage pin-ups and H‑D motos then you’re going to have a good morning. Be a mensch, send the postcard to a soldier after you’re done with the drooling.
It’s TT anticipation time. Cafe Racer Society features the art of John Hancock drawing TT legends.
Much more Hancock moto goodness.
Sweet short graphic novel story about a 17 year old racing the TT in 1922. There is the possibility of a full length version. I’ll keep my eye on it.
New favorite office chair. More vespa madness.
A couple of old school links.
Nerd badges rock. The full stack web developer badge recognizes those of you (us) who know how the server works as well as how to make it all look okay in IE 5. Plus breakfast food!
Fascinating history of the <IMG> tag. A look into how decisions were made in the pre-historic era; I wish it was so simple now.
Images, Art, Architecture
Information Architecture and the City. ~The~ hot topic for conferences this year. Need a title to hang your presentation on? Head on over to the Urban Informatics Speech Title Generator. Did that last talk fall flat? Click the button for another gig.
I adore the idea of converting commercial buildings to residences. How about a gas station?
Another one for the Amazon wish list. Described by Cory Doctrow as “Funny, inspiring, wicked-nerdy”, what more can you ask for from a kids’ comic about three awkward, brainy types in middle school?
Tome Gauld does lovely pen and ink drawings with single spot colors or backgrounds. Much of his work is commercial publication illos. You can’t escape the charm of pieces like ‘empty house’.
Even if your Spanish is full-on dopey you can’t help smiling at these cartoons drawn by Juan Berrio. His blog ‘cuaderno de frases encountradas’ (notebook of overheard phrases) shows pairs and small groups of everyday people having everyday conversations.
Today’s animated video: Bave Circus. A boy sits in his tree house during a rain storm and lets his mind wander. It took me a few seconds to get over the snails as pets but the animation is lovely and the rainy day reverie is just the thing for a chilly Thursday in Seattle.
