1. "20 years after the genocide in Rwanda, reconciliation still happens one encounter at a time." 

    I am in awe of "Portraits of Reconciliation," a gripping photo series appearing in The New York Times Magazine. Photographer Pieter Hugo went to southern Rwanda, two decades after nearly a million people were killed during the country’s genocide, and captured a series of photographs of victims and those who perpetrated crimes against the victims and their families. In each case, the perpetrator was granted pardon by the survivor of his crime. Read the series and learn about these amazing acts of forgiveness. - aer

  3. Excited to share a graphic novel excerpt we created for author Thomas Goetz to help promote his amazing new book, The Remedy. The first in a three-part series, this graphic gives you a peek inside The Remedy, a true-life medical mystery that chronicles the careers of Sherlock Holmes creator Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and pioneer microbiologist Robert Koch. -aer

  4. One of Wes Anderson’s many signature styles is his penchant for precisely centering many of his shots. Korean Filmmaker Kogonada created the supercut above highlighting this deliberate aesthetic in a variety of Anderson’s films.

    If my inner perfectionist could say one thing to Wes Anderson it would be, “You get me.” -bb

  5. Coffee Place Geography

    It kinda depressed me to see so much Starbucks green in the PNW, but if you look closely, there’s a gray, “Other Chain” dot in the middle of that sea of green – small chain/indie Seattle coffee shops for the win! —jb

  6. TED kicks off today, celebrating its 30th year. I enjoyed watching this spot-on talk from the first TED conference in 1984 in which Nicholas Negroponte accurately predicts e-readers, online learning and touch-screen technology.

    I know I shouldn’t be surprised by the differences in production value, but I did laugh a little as Negroponte fumbled around loading a laser disc to project some video footage. Then again, his presentation was two hours long – far different from the polished 18-minute talks we see today. 

    Check out the conference’s "30 Years of TED" playlist for more top talks. - aer

  7. I am gaga for this photo series, Buildings Made of Sky. These flipped photos taken in NYC streets reveal a skyscraper made of the negative space. I am very tempted to create similar images the next time I’m in my hometown of Chicago. - aer

  9. Stripped via The New York Times
I grew up reading Cavin and Hobbes, like most of my generation. I had a stuffed tiger I named Hobbes (how original), and when it snowed my dad and I would build snowmen based off of Calvin’s demented creations.
Bill Watterson, creator of Calvin and Hobbes, came out of retirement to draw the official poster above after being interviewed and viewing the film Stripped, by co-directors Dave Kellet and Fred Schroeder.
I have always admired the art of comic strips, and can’t wait to see the film. New art from Bill Watterson is the icing on the cake. -bb
