This would be a nice law change here in Oregon: Enjoy this video that explains how, in Idaho, cyclists are legaly able to yield and roll through stop signs.
Here’s what I’ve been working on: Trying to get better at working with the bone tools in Adboe Flash. However, it’s a little clunky for animation. Even more so when you get into audio manipulation. I’m going to be looking into some other program options soon! But enjoy this for now:
Johny from Rejuced Bikes has a new product for locking up your bike:
This is totally inspiring me and making me hungry to draw the next installment of BIKE MAN!
I’ve been wanting to film my rides to work and such. Here’s a cheap way to make a camera mount for any bike!
I might do an illustrated diagram of this mount. Stay tuned!
Update: Turns out after using this style of camera mount I’ve found my video to be quite shaky. Since then, I’ve been researching plans for a shock mount!
Here is a break down of a walk cycle I worked on a while back. It could be used as reference to work on your own walk cycles in animation. I’ve been watching a bunch of tutorials and learned some new techniques. I think I’ll start again and make a better walk cycle.
Plus I would also like to make an animation of the famous Silly Walk by Monte Python.
I wouldn’t advocate car culture for many reasons. They take up too much room on the road and there’s no where to park them. They should design flying cars that fold up into a small lunch boxes that can be store neatly onto shelves when not in use. Man do I get sidetracked! What i wanted to get to was that smart cars are great because they take up less room on the road. If everyone had smart cars we could have twice as many lanes. Think about that, the next time your stuck in traffic. I still would rather ride my bicycle everywhere for fitness and not being part of the system. Smart cars follow a more progressive model of transportation that current vehicles ignore. I’ve always wanted to try out a smart car. But I had to settle for drawing one for now. Here’s my vector illustration of a smart car:
Also, This sweet image is now a vector. And that means…..wait for it….wait for it…..IT CAN BE ANIMATED! I can make the wheels turn and all that great stuff!!! I just get excited about these things. All the vector stuff, I’ve been making, over the last 6 months, will be use for some sort of animation. Which brings me to this idea, I just now got, why not make an animation outa’ this right now? I gotta go now…
