My Broker...?




... Michael Scwab. I mean Charles Scwab. Wait a second, I don't have any stocks that need brokering! I was asked to do some posters for a client in Michael Scwab's style. He seems to be a fairly popular commercial artist. At any rate, this one was for a Log Cutting Contest and the art director had a funny idea. He wanted a serious take on a funny theme. Irony is best served by Jason's oh so delicate hand ( or so I have read... ).

Also just added the Cow Chip Toss poster. I do a lot of serious work here at Urbanbarbarian Headquarters!

ANTONIO: Thanks! I just moved so I'm not as productive as I would like!
JUSTIN: Creepy, yet clean. Ah, advertising!
DOMINIC: Thanks! It was Mignola Lite!
BRIAN: Nice! Jason needs to seriously deal with his issues!
RURAL: Most of them. I've met a few worth their salt!
MR. C: Appreciated! I'm worried that he might not be content with just the trees.
BROTHER: Shot to the heart - and Jason's to blame! He gave murder a bad name! bad name! ( sorry... )

A lesson.
