Mad Men. No, actually mad.


Advertising has got very sophisticated these days, very subtle; but sometimes a good advertising executive has got to know when to go back to basics, to the old reliable methods that always have sold product, and always will. 

Sometimes, in other words, it's time to wheel out a cartoon of a little girl shouting into a dog's arsehole. 



Now just sit back, and watch them fly off the shelves.

Ad exec: That thing on the kid's shirt....

Concept artist: You mean the little rosette mimicking the size and shape of the dog's sphincter to subliminally communicate a tightening anxiety one might experience with the discomfort of intestinal worms?"

Ad exec: Yeah. Nice touch.

Also: 2:43 a.m.? That Winehouse Pooh image has taken its toll! Hope it gets better.

This is why we drink. That and the writing thing.

Hullo
am enjoying working my way through your blog very much, also found the Now Show about the cactus made me laugh till got asthma attack. Have only this to give back : on More or Less on Radio 4, an Australian said "geographically co located" which I might have found funny because of ignorance. My five year old and I liked the monsters you made

Thank you very much! I'm always pleased when my work brings on a medical emergency. And keep your eyes open for more monsters - I've spotted the makings of a couple in the house I'm staying in...
