    Love these. PDC (pretty darn cool) Kind of reminds me of the illustrations in an old Sears catalogue or old Harper’s Weekly c. late 1800s.

    The last one looks like the cover of a book i love, “Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close” by Jonathan Sanfran Foer. i wonder which came first.

  20. How many other alphastructaesthetitologists are there? You may have found the one profession with no competition.
