Order the Patent’s Progress Poster



In the effort to support the scientific integrity of inventors and their struggle to obtain patents, a little-known artistic creation in acrylic on board by patent examiner Gary Kunz and attorney Jay Ryan became a poster.


Through the generosity of Gary Kunz and Jay Ryan the artists, Integrity Research Institute offers this poster to the public as a fund-raising and educational activity.


It is a fascinating and quite humorous depiction of the journey, almost like the book, "Pilgrim's Progress", but laid out like a game-board, and the pathway of a patent application. The dual-eyed, blue patent application “file wrapper” is a literal image of the old 20th century paper file folder but personified with eyes and stick limbs. The doctor, nurse, magician, Sherlock Holmes, pole vault, ambulance, heaven and hell images all add to the attraction, while the inserted text boxes explain the slightly dates version of the real steps that are referred to by the cartoon drawings. There are many humorous details such as the Graham vs. Deere court case here depicted by a Graham cracker box fighting with a Deere tractor or the Emergency Patent Service hospital which provide many hours of entertainment and education.


This is a preliminary, advance sale posting of the product, 18” x 24". You may place an order with the awareness that the poster you receive is a faithful rendition of the original, printed on full color poster card stock.

Here is a closeup of the top of the poster to give you an idea of its artistic detail and inserted explanatory comments. You can keep enlarging it until you can read the fine print white card messages, since it is a high resolution sample, like the quality you will receive when you order the poster.
