Welcome to your Friday Links.

I hope it’s not too hot where you are. Or too flooded. Etc. My city got both in the past few days. Yikes.

Here we go…

Lucy Sparrow

“In May 2017, Lucy undertook her first solo show in the US, opening The Convenience Store, a New York bodega stocked with 9,000 felted artworks. Scheduled to run for a month, the store was an instant hit, selling out in just over two weeks to a constant stream of art lovers, most of whom had queued for an hour to visit the store.”

She hand-creates each item out of felt. These are amazing.

Her official website had hit bandwidth limits when I found this, but it’s also worth a look.

Guessmoji

Guessmoji

You guess film titles based on the emoji you’re presented with.

I got pretty far but they become really difficult really quickly.

Sol Coffee

“This innovative mobile architectural experience is built from an upcycled 1979 Toyota camper truck powered by onboard solar energy.

“As a direct service mobile unit we are available for special events, catering, festivals, farmer markets, and street locations throughout Colorado.”

I wonder if they’ll get into franchising. This is a pretty great idea.

Bango.io

A multi-player soccer game.

Super fun! Very challenging.

And that’s that! Friday Links: accomplished!

Have a great (moderately temperate, dry) weekend everybody.

Welcome to your Friday Links.

I hope your August is already off to a smashing start.

Let’s begin!

HeyJackass!

HeyJackass!

A site that meticulously documents and analyses gun crime in the city of Chicago.

This was brought to my attention in light of rising gun crime in my own city of Toronto. We definitely still have a ways to go before we’re a contender for this level of gun crime insanity. (Note: Chicago and Toronto are cities of approximately equal size and population.)

Note: these are paintings. Made by hand.

Really beautiful, expressive works.

McMoon: How the Earliest Images of the Moon Were so Much Better than we Realised

McMoon: How the Earliest Images of the Moon Were so Much Better than we Realised

These were effectively medium-HD images, created and digitized from space in 1966.

This recovery effort is astounding.

The recovered, super hi-res versions are available at the Lunar Orbiter Image Recovery Project.

Running Round

Running Round

Simple. You’re a box. You are running on top of a circle. Jump over gaps. Avoid obstacles.

Simple…. 😉
