Hooray for Friday, everybody. We did it!

Okay links time…

Mezesmanna

This Hungarian artist decorates cookies and biscuits using many of the same techniques required for delicate embroidery. Several subscribers sent me this and I was not disappointed. Just gorgeous work. I wonder how people feel eating such great, creative work.

Slim Jim Studios: NYC Gifathon

“I spent a month in New York City where I animated a new GIF every day for 30 days, inspired by something that happened during my stay.”

These are great! So is most of his other work.

Cosmos Infographic Book: High Jump

One of numerous fun little web experiments to describe the variety of environments in our solar system and beyond. This shows the differences in gravity between Earth and other planets and moons in our solar system. Fun! (And educational.)

Colonel Quest

This is a game that claims to be “historically accurate”, and based on the biography of KFC’s Colonel Harland Sanders. It’s been making the rounds and is pretty weird but fun. At least one blog has referred to it as part of KFC’s “hipster makeover”. So… yeah. That’s a thing now too.

Kyle Bean: In Anxious Anticipation

“A collaboration with Aaron Tilley for Kinfolk magazine. I constructed a series of setups using a variety of materials and props that evoke a feeling of apprehension.”

Clever!

As far as reads that caught my eye this week: here’s a handy guide on how to move to Canada in the event the US election doesn’t turn out the way you hoped. Informative!

And Gawker has a pretty excellent piece on how they fooled Donald Trump into retweeting quotes from Mussolini. Gold!

And that’s all I’ve got.

Have a great weekend!
