The cigarette, 1966. The three dimensional table of elements, 1971. Both incredible inventions, and both at the heart of our most beloved TV show.
The work of Oliver Gal Artist Co. Studios, this Breaking Bad blueprint series is based around the original patent drawings of some the most iconic props of the show.
From John Butler's 1881 design for the call bell to J Thomas' 1879 bowler hat, these works are a superb mix of history and fandom. You can pick up a handcrafted print from the Oliver Gal website here.
We're off to kick ourselves that we didn't bother to patent underwear before Phil Khan's Y front design of 2001. Well done Phil. Horrible drawing though.
