*A lot of villainy and gambling went on here. I guess it was the precursor to Las Vegas in our desert.
The desert City During a Wind Storm
*Notice that in both pictures the higher, war flag is blown in a different direction than the lower, state flag. This is due to an anomaly in the wind swirl caused by the unique design of the city. Much like the old Yankee Stadium where batters would not look to the higher flag but a lower weathervane to see what way the wind was blowing in the stadium. The weathervane was shaped like a bat, by the way.
**Modern skyscrapers actually bend to the wind quite a bit. OK, not anywhere near as much as this. But hey, this is cartoon physics.
Here Spades is on a map. (Umm, well not the right map, but a map).
And look in here, in my laptop computer! This is where Spades was made.

My customized embossed and cut out effects above.
Here is a faux 3D, faux embossed business card. Only two diagonal cuts with a scissors on a standard rectangular business card are necessary for this effect.
When asked which is their favorite album cover, it seems people lean toward one of their favorite albums musically. Here, I'm showing three albums I felt had stunning cover designs, one that was great probably because it evoked the music within, one influenced by nostalgia, and a wonderful surefire miss. Can you guess which is which?

In Japan, each family has their seal and a red ink pad. When packages arrive at the door, Japanese use their stamp to acknowledge delivery.
My seal, for personal reasons, has the Hebrew word for sun shemesh cut into it. Its design echoes another logo (below).

I took the frame from the picture within my frame (from today's NYT article on Harvard's new art galleries) and reconstructed a different frame which you see here. I like the way you are right now peering into the image of the mother and daughter peering into the image of the monkey-ish shepherd peering into stable at Joseph peering at his son. His wife seems here quite confused by this elaborate construct.

The Amazing letter S. It can turn one elephant into two, or change one gold coin into a million gold coins - just by tagging along at the end of a word.
And here is a version reminiscent of Roy Lichtenstein and his borrowed Ben-Day Dots.
