Calendar Curiosities – Happy Birthday Salvador Dalí

Calendar Curiosities – Happy Birthday Salvador Dalí

Okay here’s the thing – I could write endlessly about Salvador Dalí; his life, his art, his genius, madness and goofiness, how he and the other Surrealists were heavily influenced by early psychology, how he incorporated atomic theory into his art, how he has influenced me since I was 15-years-old and so on, for pages and pages and pages.

Fashion Plait

Fashion Plait

You’ve probably already seen some of the paper doll posts here. One of the things we did with these was print off stacks of them to give out, with crayons, at Dragon*Con. The evening before I left for Atlanta, it occurred to me that we didn’t have a one for Phil Plait, who would actually be at the convention. »

Amazing Grace

Amazing Grace

Another of my heroines in the field of computing: Grace Hopper. I can almost guarantee she will be the only one of our paper dolls who has a naval destroyer named after them. Every day on my way to work I pass a piece of the Harvard Mark I... »
