Smoking Kills 200,000 Every 6 Months





Skull With Cigarette, 2007 [based on a painting by Van Gogh]
72x98"

Depicts 200,000 packs of cigarettes, equal to the number of Americans who die from cigarette smoking every six months.

I've become a big fan of Chris Jordan's work, especially the Running The Numbers series. I just noticed that he has added to the collection on his website with some new pieces! A friend of mine quit smoking this week, so in her honor I want to share one of the new artwork pieces.

How to Spot a Cylon


This poster for fans of the new Battlestar Galactica is for sale over at QMx for $19.95, so there isn't a high resolution file available. Although, I would propose an image that we could read better would help sell more posters. In the spirit of airline emergency procedure cards, 10 ways to identify a Cylon among us.

Be Aware. Be Vigilant.

EDIT: I noticed this is now available at Amazon too:

The Transatlantic Superhighway


I never really thought about it, but I'm sure the flight patterns over the Atlantic are actually this tightly controlled. Now the news that President Bush made some of the military flight paths available over the holidays makes more sense. The Transatlantic Superhighway is one of the diagrams on John Grimwade's Information Graphics site.

Nichloas Felton's Personal Annual Report

Nicholas Felton (www.feltron.com) has created his own personal 2006 Annual Report, looking back at his life during 2006 and using maps, charts, timelines and facts to visually track his activities. With pages dedicated to photos, travel, drinking, reading and food, he plots out his one-year history.

Miraculous Logistics Behind Operation Christmas


Holiday Infoporn from Wired.com.

Here's our theory: There is, in fact, a nonsupernatural Santa. It's a transnational corporation with one mission-critical fulfillment goal: Every kid who celebrates the holiday gets a toy on Christmas eve.
Check out the side-scrolling timeline at the bottom. I think they should have included Chinese New Year.

The Disney Cruise Line Cut-Away


The family took our first Disney Cruise this year, which was fantastic! Here’s a great cut-away graphic of the Disney Wonder, but the other ship, the Disney Magic is almost identical. This graphic is a little out of date, because some things have changed. The ESPN Skybox is now a teen area called The Stack or Aloft depending on which ship you’re on.

The ship is actually quite large, so the spacial representation of locations is really helpful. You can get turned around very easily.

Apple's Life Line


From aaplinvestors.net, more than a simple line chart of sales, its a timeline that highlights major events so you can easily visualize their impact. Even though its simple, I use this type of timeline all the time.

Reasons to go to VizThink 2008


In the spirit of practicing what you preach, the team for the VizThink 2008 conference has created a visual guide to "Why come to VizThink 2008?". This graphic definitely has the feel of XPlane. David, did you guys create this one for the conference?

It's coming up soon! Jan 28-29 in San Francisco, CA. (VizThink link)

Santa Claus vs. Krampus


Infographic for the holiday season. This one definitely made me laugh. Back in the Middle Ages, St. Nicholas had a sidekick named Krampus who took care of the naughty children. Over the years as St. Nicholas evolved into today's Santa Claus, and left Krampus behind. Krampus didn't exactly fit into the Coca-Cola image of Santa Clause that we all know and love today.

Found on tevis.net. I would give credit directly to the authors, but I can't make out their names in the bottom right corner.
