The Illustration Friday challenge word this week is “transportation”.
you can't get there from here
In 2001, after a buzz of preliminary publicity, a two-wheeled, self-balancing electric vehicle was introduced to the public. It was called the Segway. By 2006, approximately 23,500 had been sold.

In December 2009, British billionaire Jimi Heselden bought the company Segway Inc.

On September 26, 2010, Heselden was riding his Segway on his Northern England estate when he veered off a cliff and plummeted thirty feet to his death.

His last words were: “Oh, Shi i i i i i i i i ….”




  1. Just because you buy a company, does not mean that you should use the product. If that was the case, then this guy should have bought the Rascal Scooter Company!! Great illustration, Josh!!

  2. I pictured his last moments Wile E. Coyote-style: defying gravity for a few seconds whilst holding up a little sign that said “yikes”, then plummeting into the abyss.
