Twitter Link Roundup #97 – Small Business, Social Media, Design, Copywriting, Marketing And More Ross | August 11th, 2011

Every day on the crowdSPRING Twitter account and on my own Twitter account, I post links to posts or videos I enjoyed reading or viewing. These posts and videos are about logo design, web design, startups, entrepreneurship, small business, leadership, social media, marketing, and more! Here are some of the links that I’ve liked and shared this past week!

The image above is a portrait created by San Francisco based creative mosaic portrait artist, Jason Mercier. It’s made from candies and pills. It takes at least 50 hours to make these portraits (some longer) and they’re made from car parts, beer bottles, and other kinds of junk. More examples in the Random Fun section below.
