Here are some sketches from the US Botanic Garden in D.C.

made-by-perrin:

I had the great privilege to work with the folks at Buzzfeed.com on a  powerful personal essay by author, Christine Hyung-Oak Lee. Her essay tells about her experience suffering from a stroke at the surprisingly young age of 33. I was really moved by her account and flooded with beautiful visuals. Read the article here:  http://www.buzzfeed.com/xtinehlee/i-had-a-stroke-at-33#1vcgnqh

I created one ‘header’ illustration (pun vaguely intended) and two spot illustrations, as well as some smaller line break illustrations for the piece.

Many thanks to wonderful AD, Justine!

Kinesin is a protein that moves things around the cell. That filament is a protein strand that gives the cell structure. That vesicle is a big blob full of cellular product that the cell wants to transport somewhere else. It is driven by ATP hydrolysis. (Source) (Video)

What if we designed a new kind of “maker space” - a space that isn’t just for putting pieces together, but also for seeing and understanding a project’s behavior in powerful ways?

Seeing Spaces

humansofnewyork:

"What’s your greatest struggle right now?""I adopted a son about six months ago. He’s 3.5 years old, and we’ve been having difficulty with his behavior. If he was here right now, he’d be running around, pulling up plants, and hitting things with sticks. He’s spent all his life in an orphanage, and was deprived of adult attention. The psychologist tells us that’s the reason he’s acting out.""What’s been your happiest moment with your son?""One morning I was standing in the kitchen, and he hugged me without me asking."(Korzhi, Ukraine)

The precision of lat/long coordinates

jkottke:

Let’s say you have latitude/longitude coordinates of 40.742041, -73.989579 (my current location). How precise are those 6 digits after the decimal point? Well, five decimal places will get you to within a meter and six will get you to within 11 cm:

The fifth decimal place is worth up to 1.1…
