According to the Mayan calendar, the world ought to have ended on Dec. 21st 2012 which funny enough, is my brother's birthday! Of course the world didn't end, he turned a year older (much to his chagrin), and we have all lived to see January 2013.
But what happened instead of an apocalypse, was a burst of creativity from different artists around the world, all inspired by the idea of a doomsday. Even I, Damola Mabogunje, created a little stamp to mark the passing of this ominous date.
So for those of you who missed this flurry of activity, I present to you the two projects that caught my attention.
