Above: the "Pepper ... and Salt" cartoon as it appears at the Wall Street Journal Web site.
One of the things I do is try to think of commonly used business terms and how I can twist them to find the funny in them. Some of these corporate terms that I've used in published cartoons this year:
- Office Trends
- Loyalty to Authority
- Access Codes
- Casual Friday
- Long-Term Planning
Above: the original. Comparing my version with what is published (top), looks like they dropped out the wash and slightly squished it to fit their square format. I wasn't asked to redraw it. If I redrew it, I would've drawn it with a bolder line and gotten rid of the cloud formation that seems to dominate the smaller version.
Pick, pick, pick.
