Peter Doig Says He Didn’t Paint This. Now He Has to Prove It.

When Mr. Doig, whose eerie, magical landscapes have made him one of the world’s most popular artists, was sent a photograph of a canvas he said he didn’t recognize, he disavowed it.

“I said, ‘Nice painting,’” he recalled in an interview. “‘Not by me.’”

The owner, however, disagreed and sued him, setting up one of the stranger art authentication cases in recent history.

Do sign languages use the feet?

One way in which the feet are used during signing is that some signs are produced with the hands, but on top of or in contact with the feet. Signers aren’t usually bending down to touch their toes in the middle of signing, though. Usually these are languages that are mainly used while sitting cross-legged on the ground. As a result, the feet are easily within the signing space.

Welcome to the Infill Font Foundry

I have no doubt that “Infill-ism” is a sincere belief and concern for VanderLans. Reasonably affordable typeface design software and accessible online distribution are now used by a great volume of people to make and sell typefaces. These same conditions initially exploited by Emigre and others to flourish now allow thousands to thrive, and there are no signs it will slow down.

But “In-fillism” is merely a sleight of hand. As a shoddy neologism, it is derogatory, misleading and hypocritical.

Stop Using Google Trends

Google Trends is a very interesting product, as it gives us real-time data on how people are using Google. Google is the Address Bar of the Internet, so if you need information on a topic, just type in “Euros” and you’ll have the scores and times of every game of the UEFA Euros Championship. Google can then track that interest in a topic and we can see it. But what shouldn’t you use Google Trends for? Well, until people start using it appropriately, everything.
