I'd like to find the original image, but I'm having trouble connecting to it on photobucket. Can you tell me what the image is from?

The first picture is interesting, although, when it comes to rock ants, ultimately not true, at least according to this article....

Good selection as always.

The last one reminds me of my art school tutors. I think his name was Rhinehard or something like that. But every large piece of fine art painting he did would always have a random yellow submarine painted on it, regardless of the subject matter of the rest of the piece.

Very nice selections. These are moving pieces, especially when considered in their historical context. Eric does an incredible job with integrating photography into the design of the piece.

Ad designers could learn a lot from studying these works. Notice how, even when squished and squeezed to fit on a web page, that the ideas and content are still clear and concise. I wish more designers would keep this in mind when developing ads.

Speaking of culture, the “Can All You Can” piece above tells us a great deal about the values of American society of that time. Interesting.

Thanks for highlighting some of Eric’s work. Very inspiring!
