Such a simple but awesome way to make a hospital less like a terrifying house of pain and death and more like an exciting jungle adventure! Actually, I wouldn’t be opposed to normal, adult hospitals doing something similar. I mean, who doesn’t like happy volcanoes and monkeys? [via blik]
I can’t imagine having the patience to draw this. Illustrator Jenni Sparks somehow does. I would probably give up after Ellis Island. Inaccuracies aside (as pointed out by some of Gothamist’s lovely readers), her style of illustration is really great, as well as her hand-lettering. And as one commenter pointed out: it IS probably more accurate than Apple maps. [via Gothamist]
That last post, and a recent (well, a few months old now at this point– I’m a little behind) designboom interview made me remember how much I love this guy’s stuff. It’s infuriating how talented he is.
If there’s one thing I love it’s typography. If there’s another, it’s skeletons. When the two become illustratively intertwined– ohhh man. They’re from a new book (the title is the name of this post!) put together by Melbourne-based designer Josip Kelava. [via Laughing Squid]
