Thanks to my dad for pointing out this neat little study. A new study shows that just being exposed to the Apple logo can make you more creative. Duke researcher Gavan Fitzsimons talks with NPR’s Susan Stamberg about his study on logos and the brain. Full story at NPR.
For my last birthday, Jack gave me the greatest present: art supplies! He got me some watercolor pencils and a watercolor block. I’ve been playing with them off and on, since, and I thought I would post a recent project. I’ve never really done progress shots before, so this is very neat to see. Though, […]
A few days late, but some of these are too fantastic not to post. Jack saw the above one on Boing Boing and got really excited. It was quite sad when he realized that it was a joke. AprilFoolsDayOnTheWeb.com brings you the most complete listing of April Fools’ Day Jokes that Web Sites have run […]
