Saved the Java applet results with CutePDF Writer, then pulled the PDF into Photoshop, messed with it and saved it as a .jpg.

Reverse Graffiti Project, April 2008, Broadway Tunnel, San Francisco.

From Viveka Weiley at chartjunk, a rework of the McCain/Obama Tax Plans chart (that’s one for you, nineteen for me) showing the differences between the Republican and Democrat tax cut proposals.

This version of the chart weights the income brackets so a bracket with more tax payers is larger than a bracket with fewer tax payers.

Save that thought.
