While the clear intentions of vodka and gin were an easy sell for my cocktail glass, I admit it took me a little longer to dabble in the dark liquors. Mostly because I was confused. Was rye like bourbon? But what the hell was scotch? And apparently they’re all whiskey? If only I’d had this book.
Despite the whimsical nature of her drawings, make no mistake: San Francisco artist Wendy MacNaughton is a gifted urban anthropologist. Her newest book, Meanwhile in San Francisco: The City In Its Own Words, is an insightful, illustrated compendium of contemporary city life.
For non-connoisseurs and two-buck-chuck aficionados, there’s a moment of minor social panic when dining out and it’s time to select a bottle of the good stuff for the table. “Oh gosh,” you think. “Don’t ask for my opinion. I do not have an opinion. Don’t pour that first sip for me. Don’t make me swirl the glass like I…
To me, the answer to the question of when you should use emoji is an emphatic always. But I get it, if you're texting something important to a humorless prick, a top hat with a lipstick kiss and prayer hands might not be well received. So follow this flowchart created by artist and friend of Gizmodo Wendy MacNaughton…
Friend-of-Gizmodo and Amazing Human Being Wendy MacNaughton painted this fantastic new chart that helps you decide whether or not you should check your email. (Spoiler: Email is the literal, biblical Devil.) If all infographics were this good we might actually publish more of them.

I am. I have no doubt about it. I had to buy an overpriced bumper to stop the reception issues. That sucked. But now I'm happy.
There was a time when I was the family "tech guy." Assembling sounds systems and debugging computers was my household contribution. These days, however, I'm not sure I could pick an HDMI cable out of a box of snakes.
Barely a month has passed since I asked you to welcome Wendy MacNaughton, our guest illustrator, and now it's already time to say goodbye. We loved having Wendy around and will miss her very much.
How can a flawed iPhone be the best yet? Here's how:
With every thing Mark Suppes fixes, another thing breaks. We're in his workshop, and he's hunched over, tightening the bolts on a squat tubular machine. This is the fusion reactor Suppes built, and it's not working.
Allison Adonizio and John McAfee think they've discovered the next great antibiotic in the jungles of Belize. It's all natural. It's unpatentable. It's untested. And thanks to our business of medicine, it's not coming to America.
Buried below the Nintendo 3DS's eye-popping screen is another impressive upgrade with nearly equal implications for the future of the console: Completely re-architected Wi-Fi powers.
While earlier today we had a quick hands-on with the 3DS, I've now had the chance to play a number of actual games. My verdict? It's a clever, occasionally brilliant system. And no, you haven't seen anything quite like it.

That stream, "@shitmydadsays," was so hilarious that many people thought it was a hoax. Turns out Justin's dad is real—and now there's a book of essays showing just how awesome the shit Justin's dad…
Soon you'll start noticing some rather nifty illustrations on several of our posts. That's because we managed to convince artist extraordinaire Wendy MacNaughton to turn some of our thoughts into ink and water color drawings.
