    I don’t really find these too creative and a bit offensive to history, how they tell the story is too blunt and crude.
    It literally looks like a person copied and pasted a ton of toilet men pics and added in text and lines.
    Would be nice for a portfolio but not for show.

    Looks like they just ripped the idea from the diagrams on the walls of Aperture in Portal.

    Yeah, not digging these too much. The perpendicular timelines are very confusing and illogical. Was a half hearted attempt to be funny, and creative, and it wasn’t very successful at either.

    Complete historical accuracy would probably require a few more people icons at least. The succinctness and wit are biting all the same.
