Showcased today on NPR, our sentence diagram charts (one covering lines from notable novels, the other action movie quotes) make a perfect back-to-school gift for English teachers—or book buffs, movie nerds or language lovers.

Thanks for making our Classic American Cars print such a speedy success! But if you prefer a lower-tech, somewhat slower (OK, a lot slower) form of transport, try the Visual Compendium of Sneakers on for size.

Behold the beauty of this early iteration of our Classic Automobiles print! Personally I thought the chart was fine as is, but eventually was persuaded to add 108 inferior, non-Delorean cars.

Take a drive down memory lane with this chart of all-American motorcars and automobiles from 1895-2014, featuring 108 hand-detailed cars restored to showroom condition!

10 of the Most Iconic Swords in Fiction
A new infographic illustrating various iconic swords in fiction. Unlike my previous movie trucks piece I did no trace work for these illustrations, as there simply weren’t any images available to trace. At least for most of them.
I drew all of the swords free hand (I really need to buy some rulers…it’s ridiculous) and I realise that some elements may be slightly out of proportion.
Rather than being an infographic (as I like infographics with as little text as possible), I’d consider this more as a kind of visual reference. Ultimately, I hope that you all approve.
