Sponsored by Hess Marine at the time, this very nice Ducati Diana. Click through to the Hess Marine site for a bitchin’ collection of their employee’s hobbies and other sponsored racers.
Just for the sighs. 1957 Norton Manx.
In the news:
Promo for the TTXGP series, all the tracks, all the dates. Get your tickets soon.
Danica goes NASCAR sponsored by Hot Wheels. Better yet she helped design her very own hot wheels car — the Danicar.
Science and Tech
Flying dragons. Maybe 1/10 scale. Beautiful fairy tale creatures in reality.
A new “skin” for helmets. Sloppy and mobile it helps to prevent twisting forces from being transferred from the pavement to the helmet. Kinda cool, but really creepy.
Art, Images, and Design
Alien Queen. In recycled metal. We’ll need a bigger dining room.
Damien Kamholtz builds dreamlike images of children and their particularly not quite real view of the world with layers of wash and glazes. (PS This is the way to use flash on a portfolio site.)
The fate of comics in the new electronic age is a well beaten dead horse. Here’s what I want to see, the subscription model in a useful format. Bizzaro iPhone app.
From We Buy Your Kids. Stills for the up coming Moon River music video. I love WBYK’s work, but I don’t like most of the music/musicians they work for. This one I should like.
Daily video. Francoise Mouly, art director for the New Yorker, discusses the process of building the special three part “multi-cover” for the money issue.
keep calm and carry on,
Yesterday was the Apocalypse. Today we have a serious problem.
