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.
“Artzee Fartzee” Post It Post will be back after these messages!
And we now return to our “Artzee Fartzee” Post It Post already in progress.
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.
“Artzee Fartzee” Post It Post will return after these messages!
I know it’s been some time since my last Post It Post, or let alone a Post for that matter, put here I am, back with a NEW one for your viewing pleasure.
In this Post It Post, I guess you learn that you should only bet on those things that you consider a “Sure Bet!”
By the way, the “Artzee Fartzee” drawing of Monster the Hermit Crab was based off of my real life hermit crab named Monster that my wife was given as a gift about a year and a half ago. We named him Monster because he was much bigger than the other hermit crab that we also had and because he would push the other crab around like a school yard bully. Sadly, Monster is no longer with us. He passed away a couple of months ago. I discovered his limp body hanging partially out of his shell. Please…a moment of silence if you will…for Monster…the Hermit Crab. Shhhhh!
