Gnimmel's House of Maps
Recent baby arrival means that my Tumblr artblog is not likely to be updated for some considerable time, so I thought I'd post it here to see if anything was of interest. Originally this was a project to finish 31 unfinished artworks and post them one-a day for a month; some others got tacked on at the beginning and end. Some of the more interesting contents include: a flowchart of Shakespeare's plots, a tube map of the periodic table (and vice versa), photostory The Mirror; various maps, instructions, diagrams, flowcharts etc. (some NSFW).

Really like the wide format. Does Tumblr do any kind of fancy image scaling or is it one size fits all?

gnimmel's text under the "flowchart of Shakespeare's plots" seem to indicate that Tumbr does some scaling.

Yes, Tumblr does a lot of scaling - rather too much in some cases (e.g. very large images are auto-rescaled down, hence my having to host some bigger images elsewhere). The wide format is the HD Exhibit theme, which is meant for HD photography.
