Idiomic: A site to learn idioms

A few weeks ago Jeffrey Hill informed on Idiomic on The English Blog. Idiomic is a site to learn idioms through illustrations.

Here's the way the site describes itself:

Idiomic? Never heard that word before….
Don’t look ‘idiomic’ up in the dictionary. It won’t be there. Iddy just made it up. It’s part idiom, part comic.

Idiomic hopes to explore the world of idioms with a bit of humour, a bit of colour, and a bit of useless information.

In each post, our host, Iddy, will try his best to understand each idiom, illustrated in lavish technicolor. Below his attempts we will explore the phrase with a definition, an example, and finally, an attempt to find its origin.

Iddy’s not a linguist, so he’s approaching this on a purely amateur level. He invites you to correct any errors he’s made or theories you may have heard.

He’s also happy to take suggestions of idioms to explore, so please, drop him a line. After all, it’s lonely being a big green ball.
