The Same Thing.

Let's round the week up with some art and music. Bicicleta Sem Freio (Portuguese for "Bike Without Brakes") is a Brazilian art collective producing pencil and ink work in a funky, retro style:



Interesting how the two illustrations that caught my eye were of women with tattoos and guns. Maybe I should talk to a therapist about that.

I love the lines, colors and curves of the first picture. It's dynamic, sexy and so awesomely 60s. I need this in poster form stat.

The phrase "love and bullets" from the second image stuck in my head though, solely for the fact that they can both be considered one and the same. I speak from personal experience, having been on both ends of a smoking barrel. That sh!t hurts. But I'd be lying if I told you that it wasn't worth it in the end though. Perhaps that's why I tend to keep going back for more. And more.

At any rate, you can see the rest of of BSF's work on their Flickr page [some artwork NSFW].

Have a great weekend -- it's back to the Midwest for me late this Sunday, so this week's Sunday Seven series will be pushed back to the following day.
