An influential artist, graphic designer, poster designer and record cover designer – Chantry crafts his work with an on the fly, punk rock attitude that makes for a one of a kind, unique aesthetic often emulated. You Should Know Who Art Chantry Is!
Chantry advocates a low-tech approach to design that is informed by the history of the field. His work has been exhibited at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Museum of Modern Art, Seattle Art Museum, the Smithsonian, and the Louvre. Chantry builds his record, poster, and magazine designs by hand, eschewing the now-ubiquitous computer and laser printer for X-Acto knives, Xerox machines, and photoset type. His bright, eye-popping creations can be seen frequently in the mom-and-pop record store as in the pages of establishment design magazines like Print or Communication Arts.

I am far from a motorcycle guy, however I have been enamored lately by the technology and relative low cost of electric motorcycles. I am not talking about the Harley Davidson offering or the higher priced Zero bikes but the smaller independent manufacturers – an offering that brings to mind the same type of ethos as micro-breweries. Bikes released in smaller batches that lean towards a past era of motorcycle aesthetic with a ‘hipster’ appeal that I am drawn to.
These are city bikes with smaller battery ranges and fairly low top speeds. I think we will see a flood of these in the US / Canadian marketplace in the next 12 months. Great retro styling, restyled by some very talented people.

Visually appealing electric motorcycle based on the scrambler models – have a great cafe racer vibe. Beautiful to look at.
All a bit mysterious. An Italian custom bike manufacturer who are building an electric bike. The video is part of its wonderful mystery.
Super Soco TC Max
110 Kms Range

Not as retro-stylish as the others but the TC Max may be the price point that appeals to a myriad of buyers. The TC line has a die hard fan base that will grow even further if pushed into the Canadian marketplace. Lots of potential for this one.
