Greening the Grocery Store Our throw-away society functions on a presumption: somebody else is taking care of this waste. Investigation suggests otherwise. The landfill is a flawed design. Even recycling, in its current mode, is deficient. Only when people become aware of facts, no (tags: design recycling sustainability graphicdesign graphics green plastic supermarket retail shopping information)

My photo of Yuno’s Farm’s salad mix with broccoli raab flowers above is featured in this week’s New York Magazine in an article called “Salad Days” on page 104.

Sweet Pre-Trial Discovery: Papabubble

At least you can now enjoy wifi while you’re waiting to be called, so bring your laptop (Twitter, Facebook and Meebo blocked). But during voir dire, you are expected to pay attention even while you’re not being interviewed. Not continuous partial attention but laptops, iphones and sketchbooks away total attention.

If you like the creepy-warm works of Edward Gorey or Tim Burton, you’ll love The Ticking.Thrilled also to discover Korgi, Christian Slade’s lush graphic adventure tales of a girl named Ivy and Sprout, her Corgi on from the same publisher.
