This fantastic chart of the work of Jessica Hische, a typographer and illustrator working in Brooklyn, NY. Her chart was floating through the world of Facebook when I saw it and read up a little on Jessica and the work she does — long story short, she’s one very talented lady! So, check out her site, and then click on the chart below so you can read all of it (this is just a partial snapshot) — it’s not only educational, it’s also pretty gosh darn funny.
Just read this article on cnn.com and immediately added this to my list of places to visit. Sculptor Jason deCaires Taylor has installed 403 ghostly life-sized human figures made using special cement mix to encourage coral growth. deCaires Taylor told CNN he wanted to “create a monumental artificial reef, a habitat space that would encourage fish to colonize and inhabit the area.” Good for the environment and good for the creative spirit. A haunting sight that I can’t wait to see in person…. I just need to learn to scuba dive first…
I stumbled across this on Newsweek.com and found it worth sharing. A beautifully completed illustration of the world. Bravo!
