The Story by Mobstr

This put a smile on my face. Continuing on from Mobstr’s "Playing With The Buff Man" series, The Story tells the tale of the on going dance between the artist and the so called “Buff Man” as they both fight for control over the wall.

  • "before" picture of a typical American "neighborhood main street"
  • "after" sketch. Check out the sharp corners, bump-out sidewalks, center turn lane, parklet, dedicated truck loading zone and of course the buffered bike lanes

bikeyface: fair weather, 21.11.12.
had a good week with some sun and highs of 60°F (15C) in PDX. 
but it might rain a little today (though I hope it won’t). before another few days of sun. 
I think I’ve finally identified a general weather pattern in PDX:
few days (like at least 4) of rain. then one day sunshine. followed by another stretch of rain.
few days (max 6 or so) of sun, no rain. then rain again before a couple more sunny days.
or few days of rain for only some hours of the day, then like 20mins of sun. for a while.


Bikes are fun in the sun but still sensible in the rain.

ARCHIST  |  Federico Babina

"The collection of 27 images, entitled Archist, playfully interprets the styles and themes of some of the world’s greatest artists including Picasso, Salvador Dali and Joan Miro, and imagines them as architectural forms." - Dezeen
