Nine years of sleep

without comments

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 But, also, wouldn’t it be nice if this kept on going until the day it is no longer updated because I am dead?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:

Between the poles

without comments

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.”

Bandstand

without comments

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.

Flag proportions

without comments

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.

A couple of football infographics

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.
