Designer Marin Dearie created color strips, reminiscent of my favorite paint sample cards, to show how things in nature, as well as popular culture things we like to make fun of, change in color over time.

People get addicted to looking like they’ve spent time in the sun, when all they’ve really done is sit in a windowless office cubicle.
And of course there was poor Michael Jackson, putting himself through so much plastic surgery that the young man in the poster I kissed in 4th grade when Thriller came out no longer looked like the same person.
