Behold. Here are some great odds and ends I've been enjoying lately.
1.) Chicago artist, activist, and teacher Anne Elizabeth Moore spoke on Chicago Public Radio this morning about her women's rights work in Cambodia making zines with young women.

2.) The awesome Chicago Arts blog and podcast Bad At Sports has recently teamed up with PBS' Art 21 for some Chicago-based arts coverage. The new online series is called Center Field: Art In the Middle with Bad At Sports. Check out a recent interview with Jacob Meehan of Golden Gallery.
3.) Chris Ware's rejected cover for the May 2010 Fortune 500 issue. Be sure to view large and check out the nitty gritty detail in all its groan-worthy glory. Found at Comics Beat here.
4.) This Kid Cudi Make Her Say video is pretty rad:

5.) This has been done before (theatre kids love doing stuff like this), but this is a particularly good version:
6.) Now this is something that is long overdue: posters-on-a-stick. By Allan Peters. See more here.
7.) For all my library and book-nerd friends, check out David Garcia Studios' revisioning of the modern personal library, called The Archive Series.
