hey kids, ALLIGATOR!!!...

'cuz everybody loves a repeat of a step by step process post...

first: start with a dire need for a new portfolio.


next, dig around for some recent sketches. anything will do. say, a recent petarding of a close friend and creative partner...

now drain out all that comics junk, 'cuz art directors think they're oogy... and make it orange.
now paint it. paint it like there's a mortgage payment due. paint it like you don't want to have to wear a paper hat... ever. paint it like you've no intention of calling a thirteen year old "sir". paint it with love.*
now get your rep to try and sell it to some business magazine... or something... whatever... remember, you're a private dancer. a dancer for money. do what they want you to do...


* by "love", of course, i mean a mix of fear and panic...

HILARIOUS!

Great post...it's almost got the feel of those "You Suck at Photoshop" videos.
