Link roundup

1. Mondo sold 9,350 of those Olly Moss Batman posters. (Which is more indicative of the pent up demand for his art then testament to the quality of that particular poster.) Can't wait to see what the golden ticket winner asks him to design. (I'd ask for The Dark Tower.) (And oh yes, there are already many people scalping their not yet received posters at eBay.)

2. "Thousands of YouTube partners are making over $100,000 a year, according to Google SVP and Chief Business Officer Nikesh Arora." Via.

3. John K. (of Ren & Stimpy fame) has a new animation kickstarter. $30 gets you a hand drawn doodle.

4. How io9's going to use concept art to try to increase reader engagement. (I was really underwhelmed by the art chosen for the first post.)

5. Fast Company:

Every year, the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair wows us with the ingenuity of high school students. This year’s first place winner is particularly impressive. Jack Andraka, a 15-year-old student from Maryland, came up with a paper sensor that detects pancreatic cancer 168 times faster than current tests. It’s also 90% accurate, 400 times more sensitive, and 26,000 times less expensive than today’s methods. In short: It’s a lot better.
