Izhar Gafni from Israel has solved the world fuel shortage crisis in one fell swoop… as long as it doesn’t rain. All the money spent on bike sharing schemes in so many cities around the world, it’d make sense for hotter countries to follow Izhar’s lead. So what if your bike was stolen? Just cut out another one – this one cost Izhar $9 to make!

Whilst I’m writing about bikes (again) do make sure to check out this amazing bendable bike, tie it to a post – and no one will nick it :]

Horror on a Stick

August 12, 2012

STOYN, the Russian ad agency famous for their pop culture ice lollies featuring celebrities and icons from the past, such as Che Guevara and Darth Vader are on the verge of producing a new and far more horrific second series of their ice cream art. Check out these previews – you can almost taste the 80’s!

Artist and self taught carpenter Michael Rea records and fictionalises the world around him by recreating just about anything you can think of as life size wooden sculptures. Guns, futuristic tanks, robots, time machines, massive sound systems and giant astronaut suits… yes you get the picture, all the toys that boys could possibly want. It’s probably like a scene from an unpainted sci-fi movie set in Rea’s studio. See and learn more about his work at www.mikerea.com.

Art You Can Ride

July 29, 2012

Check out these wooden bicycles by Bill Holloway and Mauro Hernandez. Each is hand crafted to perfection in their San Jose workshop. Where humanly possible all wood used by these two master craftsmen is sustainable, recovered or recycled from local suppliers.

 

I’d definitely trade in my 70’s Raleigh Chopper for one of these beauts given half the chance. Love the styling, shape, and well, you know they’ll never rust.
