Some people are driven to standing on the streets with sandwich boards in order to find a job. Desperate measures one supposes and one can have some sympathy.Recent stories usually end up with the sandwich man getting the job, or at least ‘ a job’ I was struck recently when working on a story such as these that those blokes that are over a certain age and have been ‘executives’ don’t seem to succeed, the younger ones do.The real reason that the older ones fail, to me at least, is that the signs they wrap around their necks make them look like they are begging ( which they are ) whereas the younger ones give some attention to graphic design.
The older ones think its enough to scrawl their terrible lettering on a piece of waste card they have found in the attic and cover it with a bit of cheap plastic and tie it with string around the neck. No wonder they are still out of work.
This drawing is a rough for a cartoon to be done for www’love9am.com a recruitment and branding consultancy that knows about these sort of things.I know one is not supposed to like one’s own work but this quick drawing came off well for me.I probably won’t like the finished thing.
