Ice cream making process cut-away

Posted on Sep 10, 2012 in Illustration, Manufacturing, Process

Great cut away illustration of this imaginary ice cream plant. Ice cream is always a good example product to use when you really need to talk about technical, boring and toxic industrial insulation products.

This image is from a 1924 children’s book by Martha Freud, the niece of Dr. Sigmund Freud. Check out the other images at 50watts.com. Incredible stuff.

Sketches from Hugo

Posted on Jan 1, 2012 in Cinema, Featured, Furniture, Illustration


Beautiful set sketches from (the hand or office of?) Dante Ferretti, the great film production designer and long time collaborator of director Martin Scorcese. These from the production of Scorcese’s latest, Hugo. I love the pulley and the bracket detail on the steel column in the first drawing. Can’t wait to see the film. Via the nytimes.

L.L. Bean wrapping tissue

Posted on Jun 20, 2011 in Branding, Children, Clothing, Illustration, Packaging, Retail

I got an awesome pair of boots from L.L. Bean for father’s day yesterday– thank you KR and HS!!– and I was almost as excited about the beautiful paper that came in the box to wrap the boots. It looks like an old repeat from their archives, unless of course they never stopped using it. Anyway, the illustrations are gorgeous; check out the movement on that fisherman. They need to add some color and get into making bedding for kids. Classic stuff.

Craighton Berman

Posted on May 22, 2011 in Illustration, People

I really really really love the way Craighton Berman draws and thinks and have been in awe of his submissions to Coretoons under the pen “Fueled by Coffee.” But I’m particularly in awe of the cleanliness and sanity of his note taking as shown in some scans in recent post. With marker shading? Yeah, I kind of just get dumb and stop wanting to go on.

I just learned about Steven Noble while doing a little research for a client project. Man, this dude can draw. I just hope my client doesn’t read this and go hire him instead….
