VAV!/October 16, 2013

Intricate and more than riveting, brilliant, sensational, and mind boggling...the cutaway drawing, also known as a cutaway diagram or cross-section.

The cutaway is a drawing, illustration, graphic, diagram,  or technical rendering featuring a three-dimensional model and its internal features. The spectacular illustrations, both artistically clean and sharp, reveal the hidden and inner workings of virtually anything that moves or is imagined.

Doing It Right: Guardians of the Galaxy

VAV!/August 23, 2014/Contributed by Stars in Her Eye Bringing superheroes to life is more than just getting the rights to vintage comic material and slapping it on ten big screens. Studios have had to walk the tight rope between tacky and tasteful when bringing superheroes to life. Movie and TV adaptions run the gambit from camp (the Adam West Batman) to thrilling (X-Men) to just plain sucky (the poor Hulk movies). Studios find success often with typical characters that have become mainstream (Batman, Superman) while also bringing lesser known characters into the everyday media fold (Iron Man). The latest trend? Ensemble movies.

 

Kotex - The First Successful Feminine Hygiene Product

Pictured above: Ad from Ladies' Home Journal 1940 via Duke Library/http://library.duke.edu/ VAV!/August 27, 2013 Hallelujah and HELLO!The first Kotex feminine hygiene products were made of celucotton, a material originally developed by Kimberly-Clark Corporation and used for surgical bandages during the First World War. Army nurses repurposed the ultra-absorbent bandages as menstrual pads and a  product was born!  Kimberly Clark then created the Cellucotton Products Company and launched Kotex  (K)Otton-like (TEX)ture! The initial  Kotex ads ran in 1921 in the Ladies' Home Journal and the Good Housekeeping magazine.  Readers of the Ladie's Home Journal were encouraged to call upon a Kimberly-Clark staff nurse, Ellen J. Buckland (also a brand ambassador), for advice and comments on the product.
