View Resource Craftster.org

Crafts are back in fashion, and it would seem that a younger generation is ready to put its own imprimatur on this time-honored tradition. As the website indicates, Crafster.org is for "People who have crafty urges, but who are not excited by cross-stitched bunnies and crocheted paper cozies, can show off their current craft projects, ask advice on future projects and get inspiration for new...

View Resource Picassohead

Absolutely just for fun (or is it?), you can become a Cubist painter at this clever site, creating an original work of art by moving facial parts -- eyes, hair, lips, ears, noses -- onto a canvas in the same fashion as snapping plastic parts onto a Mr. Potatohead doll. There are also tools for colorizing, rotating, and changing the sizes of your design elements. Once you have painted your...

View Resource Graffiti Archaeology

Envisioned and created by Cassidy Curtis (and a few photographer friends), this site is a "study of graffiti-covered walls as they change over time" in San Francisco. While reviled by public officials and city sanitation workers, these walls seem to come alive with a flourish, as visitors can watch these locales change over time. Currently visitors can browse through five different locations in...

View Resource Tessellations.org

When one thinks of tessellations, one may frequently think of the somewhat surreal and at times claustrophobic renderings of the legendary M.C.Escher, whose designs decorate many a college student's living space. Designed to celebrate tessellations, this website is maintained by David Annal, who himself has created a number of compelling patterns using tessellations, and placed them on the site....
