Haha, Johane and I are laughing. Awesome. It's funny but sad at the same time. Great, now I'm depressed. That story guy is now going back to his office to rant to his officemate...

To be fair, at Features at least there'd be a Production Assistant to carry the boards in for you ...

Don't you just love it when a green pitch goes orange? heh

That's why Jesus invented whiskey for us all to cope.

Can we print this on a shirt? I want to wear it to my next drive by. Maybe I'll just print it off and tape it to myself. Hey, then the execs will go after the paper on my clothes and leave the board alone! It's the same logic that I use when I go walking in the Canadian woods with my children... I smear ham on them so the bears will be attracted away from me so I can run away. Let's face it... bears gotta eat, and you can always make more kids, right.

But storyboards... storyboards are forever.

I'm your biggest fan, sir! Brilliant!

Thanks for all the nice comments! I remember getting the idea for this back when I started boarding somewhere around 2001 or something. Only took me 8 years to get around to actually drawing it up.

Josh:
In Features there MIGHT be a PA to carry the boards in, but they'd never be able to get the board up on to the wall, and 95% of the drawings would get scraped off on the way to the room.
THAT is an entirely different cartoon.
Great stuff sir!!!

Ryan Green said...

hahah it's sad how I can relate to this. We had a few executives in the room and it was painful.......so horribly painful.

Soooo, were you brought in as a bounce board for the lead at the table? Or did they already have stuff ready and just wanted a dog and pony show?
