Illustration Friday: Invention: Popsicle

Popsicle beach B/W

In 1905, the Popsicle was invented by an 11 year-old Frank Epperson. He had left his fruit flavored soda outside on the porch with a stir stick in it. The drink froze overnight, and the next morning he discovered the frozen treat. He originally called it the "Epsicle" (no relation to the Epilady), which his children later re-named to the more palatable "Popsicle."

For this illustration, I was inspired by some old kids' cookbook illustrations, that were just line art and photographic items (like cakes, ice cream cones etc. If i can find them again, i'll put up a link or post them.) I ended up doing a color version too. I like the line art one better, but I figured I'd post both. Tell me which one you like better.

Illustration Friday: Thanksgiving Pt. 3: We Are Family*

Thanksgiving I did this one for the (Portland) Oregonian last year for their Thanksgiving Food Section.

*Does anyone remember how when Pepsi Free (Pepsi without caffeine) was introduced in the 80s, the jingle was to the "We are family" tune, but they sang "We are Pepsi Free..."?

Illustration Friday: Thanksgiving Pt. 2: The Turkey's Revenge

I did this back in the day (1999?) at EarthLink for some holiday webpage. I found this in the detritus of my ftp server. If I find the vector version I'll post a larger version.
