Illustration Friday: Contraption

This week’s Illustration Friday topic is “contraption,” which I though was a perfect opportunity to showcase a new invention from my laboratory.

There’s a new dish being prepared in some of the world’s finest restaurants, and I wanted to get in on the ground floor, because I think this is the next big thing. It’s called “toasted bread” or more commonly “toast”.
I know what you’re thinking:
“Toasted bread? Why would I want to dry out an otherwise delicious, moist and chewy slice?”

While I’m not going to called you an uncultured ignoramus, I would respectfully suggest that you should TRY it before you pass such a crude judgment on something you know nothing about for crying out loud.

So anyway, I was thinking of ways that the preparation of toast could be brought the home market, and this is what I came up with. This is the head-mounted version, and the big issue I’m dealing with is REACHING THE TOAST, but I’m sure I’ll come up with a solution as the design process unfolds. Possibly a tremendous pair of chopsticks.

    This illustration is fantastic for the screen, because you just keep scrolling and scrolling, only revealing parts of the machine at a time. Love the little boy’s face.

    Nice work. As Mathew says, one of my favs.

    Not just because I had a toast theme too.

    I love the change of scale as you scroll down and the anticipation that builds as you await the reaching of the end.
