Why can’t making a living be as easy as twisting off the top of a jar of Jalapenos and downing them down by the spoonfuls? How come one can’t earn bank by drinking gallons of Tabasco Sauce and chasing it back with a shot or two of Salsa? The answer…nothings that easy!
Unfortunately, money just doesn’t rain down on us like hail in a thunderstorm…you either inherit it if you’re lucky or in most cases, you have to work for it. It’s the same story with us Graphic Designer/Illustrators…so, if any of you out there reading this would like to hire a very talented, extremely easy going, creative individual, with a kick ass portfolio and resume, either in a full-time or freelance position…drop me a line, we’ll gab and see what I can do for you.

You know what I really miss about television from the 80′s and 90′s…the intros to the commercial breaks. They were definitely more polite. For instance, let’s say when “ALF” would go to commercial, usually an “ALF” logo would come up on screen and you’d either hear an announcer or the voice of one of the cast members say, “ALF will be back right after these messages.” And then when the advertisers were finished trying to sell you their wares…the network would politely announce, “We now return to ALF.” What the Hell happen to this practice? I know, I know…shows cost more to produce so that now there are more commercials and less time for even the show let alone the politeness of greeting you back after having been rudely interrupted with advertisements, but dammit, I miss that! Hell, no one did it better than NBC on Saturday Mornings when they’d have their sitcom stars do the tags in between the commercial breaks. You’d have Rudy from the “Cosby Show” or Blossom from “Blossom” letting you know that “The ‘Smurfs’ will return after these Commercial Breaks,” and so forth.

So…in this time of economic uncertainty, when unemployment is at an all time high and the future of one’s financial stability seems bleak, wouldn’t one like to find some way to earn a buck for simply putting on display one’s naturally born talents…no matter what they be?!
Such is the case in today’s “Artzee Fartzee” Post It Post.
I’ve been a hot sauce and spicy food fan going on a couple of decades now. The addiction started as a mere lad in elementary school and a half eaten jar of salsa. Having never had a taste of this delicious spicy vegetable mixture before that day, my taste buds were open to a world of taste sensations that I’d never thought possible. From spoonfuls of salsa to bottles of Tabasco to eventually eating jalapenos from the jar with a fork…my obsession grew…as did the Legend!
If I could only harness my ability to withstand all that is firey and edible and channel it into some sort of profitable business for myself…I’d be on the road to Economic Freedom. Soon I’d become filthy rich, pay off all my bills, buy the actual “Back To The Future” Time Machine DeLorean, and then hire “Duran Duran” and “Depeche Mode” to perform at every single one of my parties that I’d throw…of course I’d stash some away for a rainy day…a cloudy day…a sunny day…or merely just a breezy cool afternoon. Until that day, when my taste buds and cast iron stomach step up to the plate and start providing financially…I guess I’ll have slum it and attempt to work for a living!
