Loving David Peterson’s Muppet adaptation artwork, as featured in Lauren Davis’s article on io9 “Muppets illustrations reenact classic tales and legends”.

Flowing Data catalogs some of the best data designs of the year. I love statistics and art, and when the two are fused a blending of feel-good and the-order-of-the-Universe-beauty-of-math transpires.
