Cyclists Can Dream, Can't They?
TreeHugger reader Cynthia D. sent me this painting by Tatsuro Kiuchi, and I immediately loved it. The style is very interesting - it reminds me a bit of some old European comic books I found in my aunt's basement when I was young - but what makes this worth posting on TreeHugger is the nice inversion. Cyclists in the main lanes, and a separate lane on the side of the road with decals for cars. It's not something we're likely to see in the near future, but the thought should give pleasant dreams to cyclists with difficult commutes. Via Kiuchi Tatsuro
