Name Every Hall of Famer
Location Austin, TX
Summer Anne Burton is drawing a picture of every member of the National Baseball Hall of Fame. That’s 295 drawings, each studded with annotations, stats, and quotes, in the order they were inducted. Starting last year with Ty Cobb, who was inducted in 1936, today she’s up to 1978 with Eddie Mathews. Summer got the idea after posting drawings of baseball players on her blog. As she told ESPN.com, “I had some old Astros programs that my grandmother found in her garage and gave to me, so I started drawing all these old Astros players I’d never heard of before, and I got really into it. And then it hit me as a fully formed idea: I’m just gonna draw every Hall of Famer.” Summer also enjoys bad TV, good books, and tacos.

Tumblr At Night
Ура! Tumblr is now available in Russian.
This localization makes Tumblr more accessible in Russia, Uzbekistan, Kazakhstan, Ukraine, and a host of other countries where we’ve seen new Tumblr communities emerging.
This makes eight different languages that Tumblr supports, with more coming!
Over the past twenty years, Carsten Höller has created a world that is equal parts laboratory and test site, exploring such themes as childhood, love, the future, and doubt. Höller left his early career as a scientist in 1993 to devote himself exclusively to art making, and his work is often reminiscent of research experiments. His pieces are designed to explore the limits of human sensorial perception and logic through carefully controlled participatory experiences.
