Women knicker’s, Dove and Pterodactyl by KARL LONGBOTTOM

For about a year, i suddenly have been much more interested by light single line kites to play indoor or in very light winds in the field, waiting to fly bigger and heavier kites. Those kites are great to watch but they are often even greater to fly.

Here are 3 of my favourite kites at the moment, with lots of innovations, humour, very well design and made by Karl, and at last but not least, quite cheap ! :

The lad’ys knickers, the dove and the amazing pterodactyl i fly this summer in New-York, Bali and so many other places in Indonesia.

Much more informations about Karl on his website :

Graphic Design and kites : The festivals posters

As a graphic designer and a kite flyer myself i am very sensible about the posters designed to promote festivals. Unfortunatly, i can tell very few are good, even if the kites which are presented are amazing, and if the kite flyers are very sensible to art, paintings, and drawing, because it’s all they do : decorate the sky.

Here is a very interesting collection of them mainly from France, but also Germany or Taiwan :
