get your hair out of your eyes and sit up straight."
I have a cartoon in this month's Harvard Business Review. You can see all of the November HBR cartoons online here. There's a good selection by some of today's great cartoonists.
Below: let's look at this fellow EXTRA BIG so we can see the attitude he has ....
I like the look on this fellow's face. I sold this cartoon to HBR a year ago, and, seeing it now, he kind of reminds me of Bernard (Dylan Moran) from the Channel Four series BLACK BOOKS.
I remember when I drew the cartoon, I was getting tired of drawing a plain old desk. So I drew one of those modular things where there there's a computer behind the fellow with messy hair, and then a conference table wing thingy shooting out. If you've ever been to cartoon editor Bob Mankoff's office at The New Yorker, then you know he has a similar set up. I was thinking of his office layout when drawing this.
Drawn on typing paper with a Pigma Micron pen and a watercolor wash. Original size about 8.5" x 11".
