  1. The NY Train Project allows people to “travel one of New York’s often overlooked treasures, the New York City subway.”

    Art director/designer Adam Chang created the online gallery of tiles in subway stations after noticing the intricate details of the signs. 

    According to the project’s website, he has spent 20 hours riding and waiting on trains, swiped his card nine times and covered 118 stations. 

    "I hope this gallery can serve as not only a tribute to the history of the subway stations but also as a quick guide to getting around New York via the MTA," writes Chang.

  1. This is looking at the world with a pothole half full mentality. 

    The Pop Up Studio in Scranton, Pennsylvania is having a little fun with their weather woes. Pothole pop up is a contest that encourages residents to get creative and “positively fill negative space.” 

    "It’s a bonding experience, if you live in Scranton, to run over a pothole and bust a tire," Ruth Koelewyn of the Pop Up Studio told NBC. “We want to turn it into a positive thing.”

  1. My hand is cramping just thinking about the effort that went into this. 

    In 1692 an artist named A. Boogert illustrated a nearly 800-page book about painting and colors by hand. The book was intended as an educational guide, but only one copy existed. 

    The modern equivalent wasn’t published until 1963. 

    You can view the entire book here

    Why is it that in thousands of portraits done all over the world, artists emphasize the left side of the subject’s face? There’s a bias here, and it’s hiding in our brains.
