Very nice but I think the chain got lost in the last three images. Of course, I also almost always need to find something to complain about so boo hoo for me.

Was this scanned from something? I notice a distinct highlight on the left...

Nice link. Thanks.

It's from a book, I think. Some corporate improv comedy troupe in Detroit uses it (or used to) for one of their skits; one of my miscellaneous jobs in the late '90s was scanning slides of these images and converting them to PowerPoint so they wouldn't need a slide projector anymore.

The book.

great link! but where's the animation?

It's quite a nice book, too. Not only are those images in the links scans, they're pretty bad ones: besides the highlighting the images are vertically compressed a good 20% or so. And since it's crisp line art the jpegging isn't doing it any favors either.

Which isn't to knock the link, but to say that if you do like the art there, you may really want to check out the book it comes from. It's an attractive production.

Video along similar lines. (realplayer, sorry)

...and of course, the daddy, Powers of Ten.
