IF: Sour



No kidding! I started my first illustrator job in a publishing company and this lady happened to be the department's coordinator! If we're late for work, spent extra minutes for lunch, even if we answer a telephone call, she will deduct our salary for every minute she could find!

I did this cartoon quite sometime ago, merely for fun! There's one day May Y.C. and I talked about our good old days, she suggested that maybe I could come out an illustration of this most impressionable lady of ours! When I saw this week IF theme, she just popped out herself, so I had no choice but to dig her out and post it again!

Can you just imagine how lonely and miserable her life must be because she's that way? Some people are letting their lives slip by. Not Bobo....he knows how to live a good life!

Your simple and effective illustration and you sad tale (glad you escaped) are like modern Charles Dickens!

She really is a perfect choice to post for "Sour." Sorry you had to put up with such a awful person, especially in a job where you're supposed be creative.

Love the way you depicted her. Brilliant.

What an unpleasant person to work with... But what a pleasant illo!!! Although not a nice perosn, a nice inspiration at least ;)

Bravo! Julia.

Oh boy. The first job I had out of school, I had a similar experience- they tracked our lunch minutes, when we came in and out...it was horrible!

Her triangle face and expression definitely makes her sour. Hahah.
