   Nicely done.

And the strategically placed lamp makes it applicable whenever Korra decides it's time to go back to the drawing board.

   All the art coming out lately for the Diqiu crowd looks absolutely awesome.

Is the T-shirt logo from their trip to the moon?

I held off a bit in hopes that someone else would pick this up, but anyway:

Not quite. :)

   Curse my inability to parse Cyrillic script! (Not that I would understand it if I could sound it out, but I like being able to read-for-pronounciation languages I don't actually know.)

It says "Aeroflot". It's the Russian (formerly Soviet) national airline. Strangely enough, they still use the flying-hammer-and-sickle logo 20+ years later, because, well, it's hard to beat as a recognizable world trademark.

(Korra wearing an Aeroflot T-shirt is an inside joke you don't have the other half of yet. Soon™. :)

   Huh. That's remarkably close to the Greek alphabet. That whatever-Russians-call-Phi is what made me realize that it was Cyrillic (which made me give up trying to read it as Greek), but even that's a straightforward mutation of the Hellenic glyph. I need to remember that.
Of course, I still would've been confused, since "flot" is not recognizable as a Greek root, but I would've been able to say it aloud, which can be fun. <bg>

I could be misremembering this, but I believe Cyrillic script evolved from ancient Greek by way of Byzantium, in somewhat the same way that the modern Latin alphabet used in English et al. comes from Phoenician by way of Rome.

Basically -- it evolved from a mix of the Greek uncial script (which was mostly used in the 4th - 8th centuries) and a 9th-century Slavic alphabet called Glagolitic. (Which I've long thought looks like a harried Hollywood intern's attempt at an alien alphabet.)

   Not a bad choice to stay with it, really. I guessed correctly based on a vague understanding of Cyrillic and the wings in the logo.
