Typeculture:
This website collects, amongst other things, essays on typography.

Al Jaffee’s MAD fold-ins:
Al Jaffee has created numerous fold-ins for MAD magazine. The New York Times had put some in a flash gallery. Humorous drawings, with a hidden message.

Barrier Art (a Flickr photo set):
Barrier Art consists of Mural drawings made by US forces in Iraq. Some are pretty nice, but most look like crap (artistically speaking). But it does explain what they do in their spare time.

Adobe TV:
Adobe has opened their own online TV channel. Focussing on their products (duh!), they’ve put some good tutorials, and interviews online.

Joge-e; The way of the 2way pictures:
Joge-e is the Japanese art of drawing pictures that can be viewed upside down as well as downside up. Which makes them fascinating to look at.

Atlas Monsters (another Flickr gathering):
A resurrected online collaborative continuation of Ashley Holt’s 1999 project entitled Our Bullets Are Useless*. At least that’s how they describe it. Interesting, nonetheless.

Hi-Fructose Magazine:
Well, it’s hard to describe, all I can say it’s another online magazine, but that’s wouldn’t quite explain it. Just look for yourself.

The two way pictures look like strange woodblock prints but too strange for me. I like the prints of Ando Hiroshige better
