A vision of 2000, drawn by Jean-Marc Côté and other French artists to be used on cigar boxes and postcards, for the 1900 World Exhibition in Paris. It’s actually kind of sad how little of this we have. Who wouldn’t want to travel by whale?

'Artists, even those reclusive types who never leave their homes, are all exhibitionists. And if you are involved in any way with commercial art, or in the very least have a website or Twitter account where your work is accessible, you are then inhabiting a world where always being watched is entirely possible.'
