How cool is this amphibious bicycle created by Li Jin? She attached old water jugs to serve as pontoons and added what are essentially paddles to the back wheel! You can see her riding it on the water in Hubei Province in China above. Reportedly the bike is still usable on land too, without further modification. I want to try it!
Watch our team as they encounter a few difficulties constructing the rope swing for our Summer 2009 video! Hee hee!

These beautiful illustrations were all created in the early 20th century, and all the artists are Australian. I love them! I wish I could just dive right into one of them! BibliOdyssey made a fabulous post featuring these and many more gorgeous illustrations – very interesting and inspiring! Check it out if you feel like taking a little trip to fantasy-land!
As many of you know, we were delighted to have Company of Thieves play at our We The Free store in Brooklyn this past weekend! Our Assistant Art Director Carrie popped up to see the show, and she took some great video of it! Here’s one of the songs below – they sounded great! Check back later this week for more video of the show!
Thank you Company of Thieves! And thank you Carrie!
Charlie Kratzer started drawing on his basement walls right in the middle, with a drawing of a painting by Picasso. From there he figured it wouldn’t be too hard to extend the drawings out to the edge of the walls – one thing lead to another, until he had decorated all of his basement walls with his drawings, using 10 dollars worth of Sharpie markers!

Style Bubble posted these shots of Alice McColm‘s amazing collection from a recent show. All the pieces are so inspiring – I love the delicate knits, and the colors are just perfect! I searched for Alice McColm, hoping to find a designer site or some kind of information, but I came up with nothing! Do you guys know anything about this designer?
