Here’s the second pen and ink drawing that was part of a newspaper ad campaign, of sorts, that included the earlier posted “Bailout”. Obviously we all walk some sort of metaphorical tight-rope in life, wouldn’t it be great if you knew you had a safety-net to catch yourself? What, you have no safety-net? What if there’s no god? Boy with questions like those, sounds like you need more insurance! That particular bit of text, while being a satire of the insurance company’s ad sales pitch, isn’t that far off the mark. Makes you wonder just how much the emotion fear is used to manipulate and sale things to everyone that gets scared. But it was a fun little illustration to draw; thought I need to end this post on a positive note.
