I love this song and music video all about biking. It shows all the different types of bikers (we’re not ALL hipster fixie douchebags) and does a nice job of parodying many of the stereotypes, while still being generally positive overall. The song is called Motherf*king Bike by Sons of Science. Their site is http://www.motherfuckingbike.com/.
Because I’m a full time professor and can do whatever I want, I had Jami “Angry Zen Master” Noguchi come to campus this week to do a Photoshop painting tutorial for my students. Beyond melting some faces off with his Photoshop jitsu, he also took the time to paint a portrait of me.
I was invited by American University’s Design Club to give a digital illustration master class. I took the opportunity to draw a screwy portrait of my Super Art Fight cohort, Ross. No audio because YouTube hates my audio tracks and gives me grief about monetization and shiz like that which makes no sense since I recorded the damn things, but whatever. Here’s a timelapse of the illustration.
I’m uploading the entire presentation which is about an hour and half, so if you want to something to lull you sleep on a restless night, I’ll hook it up as soon as it’s ready.
This past weekend, the Super Art Fight gang went to Webcomics Con, and due to the wedding of a very close friend, I couldn’t attend. In my stead, they held the SUPER ART FIGHT: ROSS NOVER MEMORIAL CUP tournament. One of the bouts, Nick “Ghostfreehood” Borkowicz versus the Internet’s own Chris “Dr. McNinja” Hastings. has found it’s way online. If you’ve never seen how SAF looks, this is a good example (though without the gigantic stadium-sized audience we normally have). Some of the best improv art and comedy we’ve ever had.
Found from Kottke.org (which I probably check more than any other website), here’s a great video about bicycles and how they stay up while moving when NOBODY IS ON THEM. Physics + Bikes = Fun and Awesome!
