"'365' is a knitting clock created by german designer siren elise wilhelmsen. according to wilhelmsen, time is a concept which unites us all, making it the lowest common denominator. on the one hand, time appears to be a as physical phenomenon, logical and easily divided into the past, present and future. on the other hand, time can be viewed very subjectively. how long a minute, an hour or a year takes can depend on how time is experienced in different situations. however, this does not alter the fact that a day has 24 hours, one hour has 60 minutes and one minute has 60 seconds.
'365' seeks to give a physical manifestation to the change of time. drawing from the change that is witnessed through the growth of human bodies and hair, the same concept is found in '365' which translates time through the growth of knitted material. the clock houses a circular knitting machine with 48 needles, a thread spool, a thread holder and roll of yarn. moving in clockwise direction, one day leads to a complete round, while a year gives users 2 meters of a complete scarf."
Another strip in the mnftiu style where existing drawings are used instead of original drawings.
These lamps are fun. They remind of Pixar's Luxo
This is the most educated comic series I've ever seen. Few places have Nikola Tesla and St. Francis of Assisi conversing on the same page as spoofs (spooves?) of Jane Austin, Shakespeare, and Euripides.
Kate Beaton also has a wonderful style and inking quality that makes even the less-funny strips nice to look at.
One of the best qualities of the strips is the voice. For most comics, reading them in your head sounds very flat, where Beaton's characters seem very real. I can hear actors saying the lines when I read them.
1 - You drop something and your left hand instinctively reaches out to press Ctrl-Z
2 - You receive a handwritten note and instinctively scan the top looking for a timestamp
3 - You try to write a handwritten note but you spend so much time looking for paper and pen or pencil that you give up and just write an email
4 - You try to write a handwritten note but your hand cramps after just 2 or 3 words
5 - You mentally categorize people without email addresses as 'Dead'
6 - When you hear a song you like on the radio/PA system you try to vote it up
A brief conversation between the two men. Not much is said, but it's a window to another time: the overlap between the industrial age and the modern age, when people can make passing remarks about Hitler's attitude toward the public reception toward science fiction, and "Citizen Kane" needs a gratuitous plug to build awareness of it.
This would be great for stop-motion animation.
I like how dark it is. And I like the name "Filth Wizardry"
My first thought was that in the subjunctive case, you would say "If it were my home" but that doesn't matter.
My second thought was, "It's not really a spill, is it?" Spills fall down. This is falling up. But we've had 9 years since 9/11 and still haven't come up with a good name for that either.
I don't know how thick the oil is in the different shades of grey, but even if you look at just the densest area, it's still pretty big.
These kinds of sites always make me slap my forehead. The programming required for this kind of site is minimal enough that I could (probably, I think) do it in a single evening, but the exposure it's getting now must be huge.

A lot of corny jokes, but a lot of truth too
