  • Comment
Wildlife snaps - Black Panther design - free Photoshoppery - woody chair - British sports car

CHECK OUT the best animal snaps of the year, as judged at last night's Wildlife Photographer of the Year Awards. The winners are available on the web and will be hanging on the walls of the Natural History Museum, London from today until April 26, entry £7.

VISIT a collection of the graphical designs of Black Panther activist Emory Douglas (example pictured). Black Panther: Emory Douglas and the Art of Revolution runs until 31 March at Urbis, Cathedral Gardens, Manchester, entry is free.

PLAY with pixlr, the new online photo-editor. It has most of the basic tools of Photoshop and the occasional glitches can be overlooked as it is both fast and free.

SEE Nature V2.01, a chair that affects to be cut straight from a tree, with bark and all. Created by the Drawmeasheep design collective the chair 'explores today’s struggling human relationship with nature and our desire for authenticity'.

CONSIDER the Climax. This new British sports car is inspired in name and shape by the Cooper Climax F1 car of the 1950s. It can run on bio-ethanol and is super-lightweight thanks to an aluminium chassis and carbon fibre and magnesium wheels. It goes from 0-60 in under four seconds and only 100 will be made. Yours for £80,000.
