I am still undecided about the show, but I completely love the intro. See here for more about the artist, Dean Haspiel.

Pictorial Websters

I love projects like this. Artist and bookbinder John Carrera has compiled thousands of illustrations from 19th century Merriam-Webster dictionaries into one volume: "Pictorial Webster's, A Visual Dictionary of Curiosities." The book also contains new illustrations by Carrera. See here for the story and video.

More Strange Pictograms

I was researching fire symbols in preparation for my next First Amendment illustration. This sign apparently marks the location of fire blankets at K.U.Leuven Chemistry labs. See here for some helpful tips on fire extinguishing.

Freedom of Speech

Here is my illustration for Cohen v. California. In this case, the Supreme Court found that a person could not be punished for wearing a jacket that expressed disapproval of the draft. Justice Harlan wrote in the opinion that "one man's vulgarity is another's lyric." I think the angry emoticon works perfectly here.

Can You Dig it?

We rented The Warriors the other night from Netflix. I've seen this movie before, but this time I noticed that this Warrior looked familiar. Why? Warrior Rembrandt (Marcelino Sanchez) was also Ricardo from The Bloodhound Gang on 3-2-1 Contact. Here he is as Ricardo in The Case of the Thing in the Trunk, Parts 1 and 2. (Watch it - it's interesting. I totally remember that pinhole camera trick.)

But that's not all! I did some research, and learned that The Candy Store Girl from the Warriors was actress Ginny Ortiz, who played Trini on 3-2-1 Contact. Here she is in the very first 3-2-1 Contact episode.
