Fireworks!

October 5, 2008

I love fireworks, always have and probably always will. I have always been so fascinated with fireworks graphics/packaging. Of course I’m talking about the consumer fireworks you and I buy at the stands and such. They come is such colorful packaging, they’re all made in China and ’emit showers of sparks.’ In fact that is one of my favorite phrases on fireworks ‘caution’ labels. Here are some more…

*LIGHT FUSE AND GET AWAY!

*SHOOTS FLAMING BALLS

*EMITS SHOWERS OF SPARKS

*REPORTS

Parachute Fireworks

I especially love older labels on fireworks - where everything is hand drawn. It makes you feel like your fireworks were all carefully handmade just for you, even down to the label. I don't know, but the guy on this particular box looks a little creepy.

Pilot Razor Points

Some of my favorite pens to draw with are Pilot Razor Points. They’ve been around for a long time and put down a great black line. For some reason they’re hard to find…usually only in a box of 12. What adds to their greatness is the packaging the come in. Sometimes they’ll come in a clear plastic box, but when lucky you can find them in a light blue, black and yellow box. It looks as if this packaging hasn’t changed in 25 years! It’s wonderful!
