This keeps on going. Will it ever stop? Well, I guess this post exactly one year from now would be a good time to stop doing it.
A decade of sleep has a nice ring to it. But, also, wouldn’t it be nice if this kept on going until the day it is no longer updated because I am dead?

Fun thing I learned about Welwyn Garden City last week from Wikipedia: it’s both a garden city (like, duh) and a new city. Thus, Venn:
This is one of eleven infographics I did last September for Sports Illustrated about Derek Jeter’s career. You can see the others here: http://flipflopflyin.com/flipflopflyball/info-derekjeter.html
Here’s a chart I did back in March for the Bay Area News Group regarding the Oakland Athletics’s general manager Billy Beane.
A quite pointless chart re the names of the five main professional sports leagues in the United States.
I’ve been keeping a chart for a few years now, just noting down when I went to sporting events.
Here you go, waste a few seconds of your day looking at this rubbish, why don’t you?
2015, so far:
Merry Xmas Everybody.
Two drawings of the areas between the foul poles at major league stadiums. I kinda like that this combines the idea of an infographic with “art.”
I’ve been keeping a chart of my sleep for eight years for whatever absurd reason I feel justifies such behaviour:

I’m starting a new ongoing project on the site today. It’s called Bandstand. Hopefully I’ll keep this going until I have done every single band that exists, has existed, and will ever exist. That last sentence is a lie. But I will do a lot more.
Here’s an infographic about when in the calendar year each of the World Cups has taken place.
Whenever a big sporting event comes around, every (EVERY!) Web site has to have lots of graphics of little flags. It’s kinda nice. I like flags. But, because of the way things are designed, lots of times, the flags are wrong, proportionally. The best, most obvious, example is Switzerland’s flag. It is a square not a rectangle, (although I guess a square is a rectangle). It got me thinking. And because I can’t think without drawing, here’s the proportions of all the flags of teams in the World Cup.
Here’s a chart looking a Liverpool players who played at World Cups and how they got on: http://flipflopflyin.com/flipflopflyball/other-lfcwc.html
First: one about the companies that made the kits worn by teams in the World Cup.
Second: an entirely untimely one about the Premier League relegation battle on the last day of the 2010-11 season.
Not an infographic, rather an animation that uses data.
Basically, since the 1958-59 season, English football has had four top tiers. Prior to that, there were the first two divisions and two third divisions: a north division, and a south division. Since that season, of the 92 teams in those four divisions, between 11 and 14 of them have always been London-based teams.
This animation uses the places of those teams within the four tiers and the colours of those teams to create an animation. The longer a team is in a specific division, the closer to the edge of the circle that team is.
More Mexico City stuff here. When I say “more,” I mean one-other-thing-that-I-did-last-year-but-I-intend-to-actually-do-a-lot-more-of-this-stuff.
