How Babies are Made

08 December 2006


So... I made an iphoto book. I tried to go for the retail catalog type approach. It is a really simple format, but that makes it look like it could be a really expensive catalog :-)

Here are a few of the pages as a sneak preview, if you don't like it... too late...

Further Thoughts

I am somewhat torn how I am going to present this project. My first thought was to do something that emulates a retail catalog layout. I think this would be very effective in removing these images from their typical response in somewhat of a satirical, critiquing way.

What do you all think? Is this enough? What would you think of selective coloring or a ComicLife based approach?

Cost of hospital visit

Insert stats on the cost of the birthing hospital visit and how that increases exponentially with number of days early the baby is.

Talkback (ComicLife?)

These have great baby "talkback" potential possibly through ComicLife. I could talk about a number of things including the cost of raising a child in the US, etc.


Disposable diapers are soil nutrients that are being made inaccessible for redistribution by means of a convenient plastic-wrapped package.

Our long-haul based agricultural system is redistributing soil nutrients from the plains to a high human-waste concentration on the east and west coasts. These nutrients have to be replaced with chemical-based alternatives.
