I'm even more amazed that they're Photoshopped rather than 3D, which I would think might be easier.  Beautiful and funny in any case.
 
3D renders of people's napkin-sketches of bikes. Pretty great.

Back in 2009 I began pestering friends and random strangers. I would walk up to them with a pen and a sheet of paper asking that they immediately draw me a men’s bicycle, by heart. Soon I found out that when confronted with this odd request most people have a very hard time remembering exactly how a bike is made. Some did get close, some actually nailed it perfectly, but most ended up drawing something that was pretty far off from a regular men’s bicycle.

The animated part shows the assembly process.

Annoying Blender things:

Every time you save it asks you if you want to overwrite the file. That's regular "save" NOT "save as". Literally NO other software I have ever used in my life behaves this way. WTF?

• Prompts are tied to the cursor position and if you move the mouse before you notice it, nothing happens. So if you hit Save and miss the prompt the file is not saved, or whatever else you asked it to do.

• Pretty much everything is tied to the mouse cursor.  If you hit a shortcut and your mouse is not hovering in the right place nothing happens.

• The UV Editor panel does not show the texture of the material of the currently selected object.  If you want to change the texture or UV mapping you have to click the object, then change the texture to the file in the Node Editor, and change the texture to the file in the UV mapping panel.  What the hell?  I can't figure out why this behaves that way at all.

• Shift-C, moving the 3D cursor to zero changes the view for some reason. Mildly annoying.

• Apple's ancient menu behavior is sorely missed.   I forget the actual behavior, but it has to do with the way you move the mouse to target items within a menu and…(oh I remember on Windows it was called "menu show delay" or something in the registry.)  Anyway, in Blender this isn't present and you totally feel it.  The menu disappears instantly if you don't mouse in a perfectly orthogonal manner.

Holy crap, Sturgeon Face is now communicable by the mere touch of a politician!  Make sure you've got all your shots so you don't end up like Bruce.

Is it because of phones that every other image on social media is compressed to hell?

do you know about the weppy format? ( click through to the original linked article demonstrating the difference between jpg's and .webp formatted images. https://plus.google.com/u/0/+ShadHall/posts/N7crEQUcvHG ) i can't wait until it completely replaces the jpeg format.

but yeah, seriously, people are saving jpg's and sometimes enlarging them and then resaving them and degrading the image every single time it gets recompressed/reshared.

Introduction
In a sane world my interests would mainly be in art, music, gaming, literature and science but considering we do not live in a sane world my interests also include atheism and anarchism.  I don't believe in Gods nor Governments.  The first because they do not exist and the second because they do exist. 

Although I would identify myself as both an atheist and anarchist, they are not destinations but stepping stones we must use to arrive at a better world, after which they will disappear into the river of time.  Nobody today needs identify themselves as an "abolishonist" because we have rejected the morality of slavery.  Likewise nobody will need identify themselves as an anarchist in the future when we have rejected the morality of the State.

But slavery has not truly left us.  We are still enslaved by mysticism and authoritarianism.  We teach children to fear god and obey government, but these practices must end if we want to progress forward.  The great thing is that we live simultaneously in both a free and unfree world.  Our personal lives are filled with persuasion and voluntarism, not coercion.  Yet we cling to the idea that we must engage in support for a violent minority of people claiming to "lead us".  We know exactly where politicians want to lead us, into a serfdom where we labor while they enjoy the fruits.

If we can reduce and eliminate the legitimacy of government in enough people's minds I can go back to caring about the stuff I like.   I want the future to look at our time and be aghast at how we could have been so foolish as to believe that putting professional criminals at the center of our society was a good idea.  I want their mind to be unable to process how backwards and stupid our society is, as if we were a completely different species on a distant planet.

I know this change will not happen while I am alive, but this is the Good Fight we must fight for the people of the future.
