This Woman Makes Tiny Homes for Her Wild Bird Friends

This Woman Makes Tiny Homes for Her Wild Bird Friends

Jada Fitch is an artist and illustrator based in Portland, Maine. She’s also a self-professed ‘birder’ who not only enjoys birdwatching and illustrating them (her bird drawings are wonderful), but also making tiny homes for her winged friends and filling them with delicious treats.”

She creates quite a bit of other content, and has an online shop, but this tickled me.

A pretty amazing little tool.

Not that everybody has tons of B&W photos but it’s a neat trick in 2019.

Mickey Rooney’s Wacko Businesses

Mickey Rooney’s Wacko Businesses

e.g.: “Mickey Rooney’s Potato Fantasy Family Restaurant” (which only served potatoes. Period.)

I had NO IDEA! This is a fascinating read.

Berlin Transit Map

Given that I live in Toronto and we still have our piddly 2.5 lines of subways, this is magnificent.

Beautiful! Sadly no method of outputting the data so you could actually size and 3d-print the ring.

Chun Kwang Young: Artworks

Chun Kwang Young: Artworks

Most recently Mr. Young created what he refers to as “aggregations”, which are large-scale sculptures formed by thousands of small paper parcels.

It is incredibly intricate work.

Turnstile Mint Reprise

Turnstile Mint Reprise

Imagine a weirder version of pac man with oddly designed mazes.

I like it. Definitely very challenging, but then also SO satisfying to clear a level.

Have a great weekend everybody!
