Strongboards by Misha Petrick are Superb!

It was only last when I walked into a skateboard store over here in the UK, and bought my son what I thought was a great-looking skateboard. However, after seeing these ‘Strongboards’ by Moscow-based Misha Petrick,I feel like taking it back. Check them out…

Stupidly-Expensive Carbon Fiber Sled by Snolo

Black Carbon Fiber Sled

Well, I don’t get to take my kids out much in the snow here in rainy England too much. However, I’m sure I’d be using one of these should I have, ahem, nearly $4000 to spare. Or maybe not. If you would like one of this slippery devices, you can get one here.

Carbon Fiber Sled by Snolo:

Carbon Fiber Sled by Snolo >> The Stealth-X is predominantly built of carbon fibre and comprises three main parts. The mono shell, the front ski and the front arm. MONO SHELL: The mono shell is made of carbon fibre. It is contour molded to comfortably fit your lower body and has a foam padded seat in the base with a flip up padded back rest. The laid back seating position allows both stability and comfort in steering and leaning. When not in use the back rest folds down, and shoulder straps which are attached to the rear of the sled move from their job as a lap belt to that of a backpack harness. To enhance your safety, a lanyard attaches from the sled to the rider whenever the sled is in use. READ MORE HERE.

Intricate Line Drawings of Insects by Alex Konahin

Intricate Line Drawings of Insects by Alex Konahin header image


These wonderfully-intricate line drawings of insects were created by Latvia-based graphic artist, Alex Konahin. He drew these ornate sketches using India Ink in fine-liner pens. I’ve used these pens before while sketching for University work, and it takes a lot of talent to use them properly!


If you take a look at the examples of Alex’s work below, you’ll notice the sheer amount of detail that has gone into each piece. There’s some images that also show the design mid-way through, too…
