Mad Quickies: Sunken Cities, Hillside Murals, Unfollowing Everyone on Twitter and More!

It’s time for your Wednesday Quickies! Let’s dive right in, shall we?

I love the vibrancy and slashes of color that artist Frank Gonzales has included in his paintings of birds.

Our pal Glendon Mellow unfollowed everyone on Twitter and then built his feed back up from scratch. He’s drawn some interesting conclusions, outlined here.

The history of a single block in Manhattan revealed through data, maps and city directories.

Muralists in Mexico have used an entire hillside of homes as their canvas.

I wish making stuff like this was my job – 3D, cut-paper typography.

I’m a sucker for high-speed photography, so these images of food falling towards their plates is a whole new world for me (and us) to explore.

Artifacts from a sunken Egyptian city have now been revealed.
