I love it when a com­pa­ny uses com­pe­tent styl­ish women to sell cars. I also love the unapolo­getic piz­zaz of these Tail fins from ’58.

Soft tail frame plus R1100RS engine… um… Here’s the fin­ish, click back to page 1 to read the entire sto­ry. Some of the cus­tom fab­ri­ca­tion and more impres­sive­ly mod­i­fi­ca­tions of stock parts from ran­dom mod­els are worth a look.

One of the rare fun­nies I have to share with you all. Cook­ie Mon­ster in a fix.

Art, Images, and Design

The French artist Dran has a show in Lon­don this month, I Have Chalks. With a new twist on the usu­al prints on a the wall. 100 screen prints of one of his well known char­ac­ters, the lit­tle boy draw­ing on the wall, were made up with­out the back­ground. In oth­er words there’s no draw­ing on the wall. Darn then drew on each print. That’s a ter­ri­ble expla­na­tion. Just go look at the pictures.

I give you, with­out com­ment, The Archi­tec­t’s Broth­er.

The link to the exhi­bi­tion info at George East­man House is bro­ken. How­ev­er, Simone Preuss gives some back­ground on the artist and the process over on Envi­ron­men­tal Graffiti.


The video qual­i­ty isn’t the best but the tech­nique and the sto­ry­line are top-notch. Ani­ma­tion that mim­ics a pop-up book, the sto­ry of a duck that unwise­ly stalks a lit­tle boy. The Hap­py Duck­ling.

Long week = short links. But I’ll try to have some­thing for you every day.
