Estas imagens de Mônaco em 1962 são simplesmente INACREDITÁVEIS! Ricardo Divila mandou. Vejam, vocês nunca viram nada parecido!

I was one of six artists asked to take part in a local Christmas exhibition. Each of us were to make 4 original illustrations, for a total of 24 between us.

On November 6:

Client: Can you provide your illustrations by December 1?

Me: Absolutely! I just need to know what theme I’m working with and what size you’re looking for.

Client: Great! I’ll call you tomorrow with the details! 

I didn’t hear back for a month. On December 6:

Client: Can you bring those illustrations tomorrow? Also, they need to be framed.

Me: I can’t draw four illustrations in one day. I needed that information, and followed up on it a few times. It would have been cool to be part of this show, but I have other clients who need work from me, so sorry, I can’t participate.. 

No response. I got another email a day later that totally ignored what I’d said.

Client: Hey, can you actually bring 24 illustrations tomorrow?  

Me: ….

I guess none of the other illustrators wanted to produce new work in a day – though I’m not sure why they thought I’d be willing to produce all 24 in a night.

An acquaintance of mine contacted me on Facebook.

I already didn’t like him very much.

Client: So you’re the most awesomest person in the world right?

Me: What do you want.

Client: See, now why do you automatically assume I want something? Maybe I just want to tell you that you’re awesome.

Me:

Client: Buuuuuut now that I think about it, do you want to have fun mixing these two tattoos together and making something awesome?

Me: My hourly freelance design rate is $XX. For rush jobs add 40%.

Client: See now, I feel like we’ve known each other long enough that I should get the “friend discount” of “free.”

Me: No. Tattoos aren’t normally my specialty I’d be tacking on probably an extra 1.5-2 hours of research time. minimum

Client: I think negotiations are breaking down. How about trading your services for you being able to name my first child, in the case that I get someone pregnant?

Me: The only thing I can offer a possible child of yours is pity.

Client: So pity in exchange for a tattoo? Good deal.

New extreme sport: Thomas the Tank Engine stunts

2 Comments and 13 Shares

It is what it says on the tin: a toy Thomas the Tank Engine doing stunts on wooden tracks. My favorite part is that the slowed-down audio makes it sound somewhat like a skateboard.
