MMT is not above pinching other people’s blogs, cartoons or infographics. Particularly, if this means poking fun at the permanently attention challenged Gen Y/Millennials. Last year I found a funny little cartoon in a Time Australia magazine. I took a copy of it and had intended to “re-purpose” it here in this blog. Up until last week, I had forgotten about it. As per usual MMT was looking for something else, when I stumbled upon this little gem. About 15 mins later I had my “re-purposed” marvtoon. Volia….!!!
Reworked Cartoon from Time Magazine, July 2015
You can see the before and after versions. Adding a little cyclist and ute driver were the missing pieces. So once again I dedicate this marvtoon to the dickhead bogan ute driver and offer ‘Vaffanculo!!!’ with the appropriate hand gesture. Apologies to John Atkinson 😉
In lieu of a proper blog about the shenanigans at 2015 edition of La Vuelta, for example various members of the Tinkoff-Saxo squad, most notably Peter Sagan, being struck by motorcycles and Chris Froome breaking his ankle, I thought I would provide another infographic. Its been liberated from the rather wonderful RCUK’s Infographic Guide to Cycling . I’ve provided the link to Amazon as shameless plug, hopefully, to ward off legal action for a blatant breach of copyright.
Woo…woo…here comes the Skytrain…
Here at marvmadethis.com, we’ve long identified that infographics are the preferred communication media of the attention/literacy challenged Gen Y. For those of us not in that underachieving demographic, infographics occasionally capture something useful or entertaining.
The illustration above does both, showing how Team Sky propel their GC rider, Chris Froome, along in a mountain stage. By keeping the tempo high, they attempt to prevent attacks from less well supported climbers, for example Alberto Contador.
I’m not sure which one of these was meant to Richie Porte 😉
In lieu of writing a proper blog this week, I thought I would share this infographic that appeared on the Peloton Magazine Twitter stream a few hours ago. You can find it here: https://twitter.com/pelotonmagazine
However, this seems to be a case of ‘light-fingered-ness’ on someone’s part, as the original can be found here http://www.cyclingcartoons.com/ is originally drawn by Dave Walker. Credit should be given were credit is due. This has now become my new favourite cycling website 🙂
