Illustration Friday - "Vacant"

Jerry's mind was vacant and he knew he needed to fill it with the right knowledge and skills so he could get a job and marry Susan.

This is from a series of text book illustrations I made earlier this year. Not very creative, but it helps pay the mortgage.

  4. This makes me laugh; I picture him filling up his vacant head with all that stuff and then Susan turns him down!

  9. Great drawing to illustrate the IF topic! Personally, I'd be watching Gilligan's Island with a very vacant look on my face.

  11. Good Luck Jerry. You would stand a better chance by getting off the sofa and checking in with a few local businesses, putting an ad in the local paper or networking with a group of job seekers.

    I'll bet Susan has a nice job.

    Great image, Kate.

  15. Know what you mean about the textbook jobs. Had a big one myself last year. Was moaning a bit about it, then realized, "Hey, I draw pictures for a living! How sweet is THAT?!"
