Jean Steou Street Art

.









Jean Steou is a creative from Biarritz evolving in both graffiti and illustration. This double cap completely mastered and his versatility allows hm to multiply professional and personal projects. Jean Steou does not limit his ideas to a single technique. From the bomb to the posca through the pencil or the calligraphic ink, he always composes with detail, mixing humor and irony. It is with a natural hyper-activity that he composes every day on all supports, walls, paper, even passing by vehicles and surfboards.

HD Sportster by Thrive Motorcycle

.













My Friend Putra Agung from Thrive Motorcycle in Indonesia send me the pictures of his last built. Based on a HD Sportster xl 1200 Thrive Motorcycle did, one more time, an amazing job full of grace and details. The project kicked off over two years ago. It begins when their good friend, Reuben, asked about the available Harley engine at that time. Thrive opened their workshop almost 5 years ago and this is the first chopper they did. They visited japanese workshops and seeing a lot of great bikes in HRCS 2015, they were especially inspired by the traditional Japanese chopper scene. You probably already saw this built on my friend Chris Hunter's Bike Exif a few days ago but frankly I couldnt resist to share it with you again. (See also : T 005 Cross by Thrive Motorcycle)

1972 Mercedes-Benz 220 D/8 Pickup

.




Mercedes was toying with how to mix luxury and utility in a pickup in the '70s, at least in Argentina. The Mercedes-Benz X-Class will be the German brand’s first serious stab at taking on the international truck market, but it won’t be the first time the company will offer a model with a bed in the back. The G63 AMG 6x6 was capable of a little hauling in the rear, but the massive price made them a toy only for the ultra wealthy. However, Mercedes-Benz Argentina made a more mass-market attempt at the segment in the ‘70s when it built a pickup around the W114/W115 generation of vehicles. Via : motor1.com

Walden

.



Walden (or, Life in the Woods) is a book by noted transcendentalist Henry David Thoreau. The text is a reflection upon simple living in natural surroundings. The work is part personal declaration of independence, social experiment, voyage of spiritual discovery, satire, and (to some degree) manual for self-reliance.

Superyacht Germania Nova for Sale

.










The 196-foot (59.80m) sailing yacht Germania Nova was designed as a true replica of the racing schooner Germania, circa 1908 at Krupp Germania Werft Kiel. 

This version was built in 2011 by Factoria Naval de Marin, S.A. Spain, using the innovative designs by the famous Max Oertz. The interior of Germania Nova boasts 1920s panache, but offers modern comforts and five-star amenities, as those usually found on luxury sailing yachts. Germania Nova’s five impressive en-suite staterooms — an owner’s suite with an array of amenities, including a walk-in wardrobe, and four double guest cabins — accommodate up to 10 on board. The style of the beautiful main salon harkens back to the classic sailing yachts of yesteryear with white-paneled walls and a rich mahogany floor. The interior utilizes a blue and white color palette, which evokes calm and relaxation; it is comfortable and well suited for socializing and entertaining. On deck, Germania Nova has a dining area for 10 guests forward of the main helm station. Her deckhouses are constructed of lightweight aluminum with teak wood veneers. Seating is available on the outboard side of the main deckhouse and there is ample space for sunbathing. Germania Nova is a traditional gaff-rigged schooner. All masts, spars and rigging are in compliance with Germanischer Lloyds. Via : northropandjohnson
