Fruit (Bowl) Loops: 8 Circular Wood, Glass & Metal Designs Circular forms are a clear choice for storing the rounded forms of fruits – but these creative modern design ideas are anything but obvious. For starters, when someone asks you to pass them this vertical wooden fruit ‘bowl’ just give it a nudge and send it rolling their way – just don’t slip while sliding them the bananas! This nifty set of wood, metal and black-painted plastic half-bowls – also by the artist Helena Schepens – does not have quite the same moves but is still quite dynamic. From tiny grapes to sizable pears and appleas, each piece of fruit added to or subtracted from the mix changes the angle of the centerpiece.

Anime Character Maker 2 LOTS OF PUNS ...A guy goes into a nice restaurant bar wearing a shirt open at the collar and is met by a bouncer who tells him he must wear a necktie to gain admission.

(Source: I Love Charts) In addition to the gender lesson in the flowchart, there are some interesting lesson about who “our” enemies are: demons, monsters, and Russians. Using a similar strategy, Laura McD. sent in a series of images from graphic novels, re-drawn by comic artist Megan Rose Gedris, designed to raise awareness about (the absurdity of) the sexual objectification of women in comics. These remind me of the as-far-as-I-know-non-ironic instructions on how to draw male and female comic book characters that have been sent in by many readers over the years (we’ve lost track of you’all, but send a note and we’ll credit you).
