Hope you all enjoyed your Christmas weekends!

Surprise! France isn't first!

Masters of the Cutaway: Hans Jenssen
"One of my absolute favorite things in the world are cutaway drawings, also known as cross-sections. As a child, I would pore over the drawings trying to absorb as many of the details as possible. In fact, I still do that! Cutaways are a fantastic intersection of technical drawing, graphic design, transportation design and architecture. Over the course of this blog series, I'll be spotlighting some of the masters of the medium. First up is Hans Jenssen."
"The Danish artist currently resides in the UK where he has made a career illustrating the hidden workings of vehicles, both real and fictional. In the 1990's, DK released Look Inside Cross-Sections, a popular book series on various modes of transportation, including military planes, trains and cars. The books were illustrated by Jenssen and his artistic partner Richard Chasemore (whom I'll cover in another post)."
I love cutaways... The Way Things Work was a favorite of mine as a child. (Man... I'm a dork...)
