Weekly Roundup: Draw birds, put them in a plasma forest.

The Oxonian Review presents the Weekly Round-up, featuring websites and articles the editorial staff have found interesting, illuminating, or otherwise noteworthy.

1. “Postscript: Ed Koch“, The New Yorker: Former mayor of New York passes away with Faustian timing.

2. “How to draw birds“, The Guardian: “Rubbish at robins? Lame at larks? Dismal at dodos?” Artist Luke Pearson gives a guiding hand, with very easy instructions.

3. “The subtle sexuality of Edouard Manet”, New Statesman: “It would be impossible to paint “modern life” without touching on the touchy subject of sex.”

4. “Plasma Trees“, (Chrome only): Grow your own forest. To put the birds into.

5. “Groundhog Day, 20 years running”, The Guardian: Bill Murray calls it ‘probably the best work I’ve done’. Still.
