A thick fog enveloped the lake and most of the bank where we stood. Outside of the haze, the dark purple lights of their eyes flickered, trying to adjust, trying to make out our forms shielded by the thin, misty veil; a veil that would hide us as long as the unrelenting fragrance persisted from the cinnamon-infused core of these links.

The Friday Smackdown is a collection of the best links in art, design, music, and photography we’ve come across over the week. Have one to add? Share it here!

Calder Moore – A pleasant array of style and expansive environment art from this Vancouver-based Surface Artist.

Post Malone Custom Spectre – This case! A thing of BEAUTY. Custom Spectre Case build from Singularity Computers, designed by James Passmore. Thanks, James!

Tank Turn – Can an electric truck zero-turn like a tank? The new Rivian EAV can. Donuts and u-turns will never be the same.
