While working on her Master’s Degree at the School of Visual Arts, New York-based art director Michelle Poler was broadly instructed to do one thing every day for 100 days. Taking her assignment to the next level, Poler created the 100 Days Without Fear project.

Poler is now 84 Days in, has since graduated, and is documenting herself facing all kinds of fears from quitting her job and posing nude for a life drawing class, to walking around New York blindfolded. See more images and some video clips from Poler’s inspiring project below!

WTF Video of the Day: Robbie Maddison Rides Iconic Tahiti Waves on Motorbike

RobbieMaddison-pipedream5 RobbieMaddison-pipedream8RobbieMaddison-pipedream7

This is not CGI, DC Shoes just released a ridiculous video of Robbie “Maddo” Maddison riding a modified motorbike into a wave at Teahupo’o. Not sure how the surf community will feel about Tahiti’s iconic waves being charged by a guy in motocross gear, the part where he rips past some people paddling just makes it all seem so obnoxious. While it’s hard to deny its brilliance from a design standpoint, this video will surely be divisive.

Watch Robbie Maddison’s “PIPE DREAM” video below.
