I got a message from the New Mystics, a Seattle artist collective, telling us about the planned bike pile domination at the freshly placed “Bike Squid” near Seattle Center tomorrow. The tentacled bike rack is located by the EMP parking lot. Read below for details.
New Mystics calls for a collective takeover of the newly installed Parking Squid. This public artwork was created by artist Susan Robb, and commissioned by WSDOT. NM calls cyclists and scumbags, debutants and ner-do-wells alike to celebrate the city’s celebration of art and cycling culture. Participate in a public bike action for the inauguration of the sculpture on Thursday May 31 at 5 PM.
NM says “Stack ‘em up.”
Collective action now! Lock 1000 bikes!
WHERE: Skatepark in Seattle Center on Thomas St.
WHEN: Thursday, May 31 5 pm
WHO: Anyone on 2 wheels.
OBJECTIVE: Total domination.
We’ll roll from the skatepark to the Squid at 5:15 and lock up, then break out by 5:30 and ride to Funhouse. If you can’t get to the skatepark, meet us at the Squid, at the Harrison Street entrance off 5th Ave. Yeah!
INFORMATION: Seattle D.O.T.
Glad to see our buddy Karl Addison is doing big things in the art community. I met him through the bike scene when he lived in Seattle. Now, he is living and working in Berlin.
100copies.net upped a new print to their collection. Only 100 copies produced.
Here at Zlog, we appreciate the finer things in life, two of those things being girls and bikes. Insa took it upon themselves to curate this series of photos that showcase some fine things indeed.
Our buddy Torey over at WRAHW is putting out a poster series and here is what he came up with for the first one. It reminds me of a magic-eye poster, hopefully when you stare at it cross-eyed you will see someone ripping on a bike.
In a crazy world where cyclists wield nun-chucks…
Here is a new illustration by Stevie Gee that was for a Japanese phone case company. No word where to get one just yet.
Halfanese has done so many amazing illustrations and now he is up on the cover of Digital Arts magazine in the UK. Go check out more work from him at Halfanese.com
Some really awesome prints just became available over at Stevie Gee’s web store. Each one is printed on acid free paper, individually signed and embossed. The lettering is done by hand so each one is slightly different.
A bike with a stamp wheel and ink roller is built in? Fixed Gear Switzerland hit a stroke of genius with this one!
I saw these photos pop up on some blogs the other day, but didn’t really look into it until Ben emailed me today. Ben is an illustrator from Germany who customizes bikes with a marker after they are sandblasted and powder coated. I think this is a great way for any illustrator to get some attention these days. It is like a rolling business card!
Go check out more of Bens work here.
If you frequent this blog often you might notice that I am a big fan of Stevie Gee. His illustrations are fun and he often uses bikes as his subject. Here are a couple tees he designed, one for Nike 6.0 and another for Deus Ex Machina. I want em both!

I really love this design! It is simple and sends a positive message.

One of my favorite artists right now!
I really like how this paint job by Russell White turned out.
