|Clever ad, or linguistic marvel?|
At first, I downplayed it to sketchbook advertising gone mainstream. After thinking about it some more, though, I realized it was really a clever little doodle. Consider the Rosetta Stone, a stone version of "Hieroglyphics for Dummies" that allowed Egyptologists to begin deciphering the ancient script via Greek, which they knew.
This graphic bridges four linguistic worlds: English, Spanish, chemistry, and symbolism (see how it's drawn in the shape of a water droplet?). Naturally, I couldn't get the concept out of my head, and decided to try my hand at a few of my own.
