Post-It Notes 25th Anniversary Illustrations

3M celebrated the 25th anniversary of that simple and functional wonder, the Post-It Note with a contest and a series of illustrations highlighting a cultural watermark from every year since its inception. Friend and fellow illustrator, Charlie Griak, asked Mary and I to pitch in, given the tremendous workload and time frame. Charlie handled the product/prize illustrations, and the three of us tag-teamed on the rest. Some I inked over Charlie's pencils, some I drew myself. Mary got us started on some coloring, and sometimes Charlie and I finished off elements of each other's pieces. It was fun to collaborate on this, as on a few we weren't sure when the illustration was complete, and who was going to end up finishing it! A few of my favorites can be viewed in our Gallery, commemorating video games, the fanny pack and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. We present the remainder of our favorites here. Is it easy to figure the topic for each?
