I wanted to serve up a few choice links today to celebrate Halloween and my return to normal blogging.
First, I have been a longtime admirer of Jason Santa Maria, designer extraordinaire and member of Happy Cog. He switches to a new, scary blog theme every October. He recently defeated Brian Taylor in a horror-themed match of Layer Tennis. I particularly enjoyed volleys 2 and 5.
Incidentally, Happy Cog was hired to redesign the website for the environmental news source and non-profit Grist, for which my friend/fellow DarkHorse Trina and my friend/bus-mate Corey work. When Trina told me of this news, I went a bit fan-boy and quizzed her on all the HTML masters she met.
To revisit an old favorite, Michael Paulus explores the bizarre and troubling skeletal systems beneath the skin of friendly and familiar cartoon characters.
And... that's it for now.
