Images From Where? and By Who? Part. II
Here is the second installment of Images From Where? and By Who? where we try to figure out who did the original design, photograph or product and if that becomes too easy then its hopefully just a nice small collection of images that might be inspiring for your day of creating.
The first image I just found yesterday and it had nothing attached and the link was generic. I would love to know if these are miniature or full size because i’d save up and buy that small brown one on the right.
The second image i’ve shown Scott once and told him if I could ever have any special power it would be being able to draw the way this car is drawn, incredible work in my opinion.
The third image is just of this generic floppy disc sleeve, you see I use to be a buyer sometimes for a few thrift stores back in Michigan and i’d spend a lot of time looking for a lot of things that looked exactly like this, to most it looks like whatever 80’s junk but i’d probably frame it.

#2 Looks a lot like something by Syd Mead.

Looks like you’ve been informed:
Dan McPharlin did the analogue synths, not sure on the other ones.
You should scope out all of Dan’s stuff up on his flickr site, his illustrations are pretty intriguing as well.

I believe all of them are credit to Rihanna.

Dan’s miniatures are bad ass. I love them. Some of them were used for Luke Vibert and Jean Jacques Perrey LP moog acid.
Also, about his illustrations… he’s the guy that made the cover for the last Prefuse73 album.

Dan McPharlin rocks. Just had to throw that out there…
He also did the cover for the new Prefuse 73 album.

Dan McPharlin does some pretty amazing illustration work as well.
