"New rental, new roommate, new preassembled furniture — the Great Apartment Makeover of 2012 is almost complete. All that’s left is a wall art upgrade courtesy of Eco-Friendly Canvas.
This earth-conscious company makes displaying your photographic jewels easy. Start by selecting one of your favorite digital images — be it a vacation panoramic or a candid family shot — then choose your frame size. Within two weeks, your Facebook cover photo is reborn as oversize wall art mounted on a renewable bamboo frame.
Images are printed on Luster Pearl Finish photo paper, which produces radiant colors and also resists fading (good thing, given your new pad’s awesome natural light). The latest printing technology ensures the photo is crystal clear and that the scene is as vibrant as it was in person. And since each image comes mounted atop urea formaldehyde-free bamboo plywood rather than cloth, there’s zero chance of ripping a hole in your new favorite showpiece.
Which means it will hang around a while."
The history of animation has featured thousands of unique and charming characters, but to make the list of the best is a tough prospect. Here are some of the most influential and interesting cartoon characters of all time:
Walt Disney had ventured into the world of animated shorts several times before he made Steamboat Willie, which featured the first appearance of Mickey Mouse, but once he drew those iconic ears he knew he had something special.
Created by Tex Avery and other animators at Warner Brothers, Bugs provided an aggressive, fast-paced alternative to the Disney style. His shorts helped define the rhythm and look of American animation for decades.
The Hanna-Barbera formula may have played itself out over the decades, but the Flintstones opened the door for animation during prime time, taking inspiration from The Honeymooners and transporting it back to the prehistoric era.
Created by Art Clokey, the genial green clay boy showed that animation isn’t just drawings on paper. His adventures in a fantastic world helped advance animation into a new generation.
Matt Groening’s long-running prime time cartoon has become one of the world’s universal cultural touchstones, and the wise-cracking Bart fits perfectly in the lineage of characters we’ve established here.
