Vintage Pencils

A few years ago I got a few sets of vintage pencils as a gift for Christmas and I just love a lot of the very old fashioned fonts and design styles shown on many of the cases here.  There's a little bit of Victorian influence on some as well as Art Deco for some of the typefaces on a few others.  These are the real deal, they were made back in the day when they still used lead which is not common to find in drawing pencils anymore, very happy to have these.

Illustration of a cycling frog

Creative and well executed illustrations are something I always stop to look at.  I found the image in Communication Arts Magazine and it looks to me like the entire piece was done in Adobe Illustrator.  Note to self practice more with Illustrator, I want to be able to draw something like this sooner or later.
