I’m not a fan of choppers — it’s a style I just don’t get. But ZZ Chop is true to his roots and does graphics with a distinctive chopper ethos. Great, grungy, retro work.
Making a scrambler out of an older BMW RT is cool. Though I wonder a little about bashing through the woods on anything with that kind of width :) The quote from the Cycle Magazine explaining the 70’s BWM nomenclature and the relationship between the various bikes in the line is priceless.
Planes and bikes. A lovely little blue and white piper cub and an equally sweet blue and white Passport. (Yeah it’s just a nice pic. Soothing even.)
Gyrodactylids. Parasitic flat worms living on fish. Cut paper animation and nesting dolls? As always Creature Cast shows you something you wouldn’t come across in your daily reading of the news. (And provides great examples of amateur animation used as a learning tool.)
Art, Images, and Design
Faces in objects, found and enhanced by Flix. Bright mecha-man goodness.

Large scale, partial images, hints of a story yet untold. Mesa works up some faces on a ruined wall somewhere in rural Spain.
keep calm and carry on
