I came across this a couple of years ago, not sure who wrote it.

1. At lunch time, sit in your parked car with sunglasses on and point a hair dryer at passing cars. See if they slow down.
2. Page yourself over the intercom. Don’t disguise your voice.
3. Every time someone asks you to do something, ask if they want fries with that.
4. Put your garbage can on your desk and label it ‘in’.

This would be a book review if I had anything bad to say about this book, but I can’t think of anything. Superbly printed and curated, the cartoons and illustrations are awe inspiring.

It’s that time of year again when all the zombies and princesses show up for free candy. This drawing was done entirely in Manga Studio Pro, from sketch to finished art. No more Corel Painter for me, what a buggy app that was.
