Colossal now has a full-fledged Flickr pool where you can submit artwork, photography, design projects or anything else of interest. Creating the group is partially selfish in that I’m always on the prowl for new content and it’s an easy way for anyone to submit work and be sure that I’ll see it. Additionally, it’s also a great way for anyone who follows this site to see the ongoing work of many artists whose work has appeared here, so add it to your daily stops. I invited a small group yesterday and look what’s already started trickling in. So excited! Check it out.
Enterprising textile/embroidery artist cauchy09 has begun stitching some of @MayorEmanuel‘s most epic tweets into lovely embroidered notes. Quick backstory: Columbia College journalism professor Daniel Sinker recently outed himself as the individual behind a foul-mouthed twitter account that satirized former chief of staff (and Chicago mayoral candidate) Rahm Emanuel in the run-up to the 2011 election. This clip from the Colbert Report should explain everything. These embroidered tweets could become a cottage industry.
Some recent submissions to My Parents Were Awesome, a great blog where people submit photos of their parents being awesome. Soon to be a book, My Parents Were Awesome: Before Fanny Packs and Minivans, They Were People Too.
