100 Copies

A collection of art prints by avid cyclist and illustrator Thomas Yang, that not only feature, but also driven by, the passionon for cycling.

When asked what the story is behind each illustration, here is what Yang said:

Ride Your Love - "This is the very first design that I came up with. It's a view from the top of my office building looking at those bikes parked below. The shape of the saddle actually looks like a heart."

Recycle - "I 'googled' more cycling posters and I noticed lots of them talk about re-cycling. Without using words (that's the rule in my poster design) I manage to connect all the bikes into a circle which is similar to the universal icon of recycle (3 arrows that goes around)."

Skyway - "I remember reading, from a bike magazine, them talking about burning the fats and not the oil. So this is a direct translation. The more we cycle, the nicer our environment becomes."

As with cycling, speed is of the essence, so each piece of work is limited edition up to 100 copies. For $35, head over and get your print.

A message from our sponsors:
You are not stuck in traffic. You are traffic.

Art that Speaks Volumes

No, these are not seismic waves from a seismograph. Bespoken Art creates canvas art based on what­ever you want — a word, a phrase, a song, anything spoken!

They will cre­ate a cus­tom piece of art just for you. They use your own audio from a digital upload or through a digital phone recording and then transfer it onto a stretched canvas of your choice.

Jump into a Puddle of Color

And you get these rain boots designed for a contest for Dr Martens. A sure sign of the Spring season.

Combine a bold colour on a chunky boot and more likely than not it’ll overwhelm any outfit. But this sort of New Wave watercolour effect is a perfectly wearable, feminine option —and very springy. A great spring boot.
