Kirsten Rickert (@KirstenRickert) Never have I clicked into this mother/artist/cyborg's account and made it one scroll of the finger before mumbling "oh, fer f*cks sake."

Jory Raphael (@sensibleworld) Notabli co-founder and designer, I'm including this guy not only because he's sitting six feet away from me right now, but because his ongoing icon project is pretty fantastic.This glorious month of May we are celebrating bees and all things bee related on our journal!
