Fix-it Squad

Last month I dropped my iPhone while cycling. I didn't realize it at the time, so when I retraced my ride, I found it in the middle of the road. Smashed beyond repair. We become attached to our devices, I was pretty shaken by the ordeal, but called my carrier and got a replacement. Crisis averted. 

I was working on this assignment at the time. The illustration is for Hemispheres Magazine, and art director Christine Bower. iFixit.com is a website that provides service manuals and instructions for maintaining, repairing and upgrading electronics and other day-to-day gadgets. It's a great idea and is run by a guy with my last name, Kyle Wiens. Bravo! Let's all take better care of the stuff we have.

Reinventing the Weed-whacker

Ever sit by the shore with a dog that just won't quit bringing you the ball? 

Maybe all that energy can be put to good use.

 

Here's a patent application for a hypothetical nonstop ball-chasing underwater weed-whacker, courtesy of Cottage Life Magazine. Art Director Vicki Hornsby.

Fun assignment!
