Fore ..... then the' ol' onion bag !'


Another, rush job, commission I've just finished for a golf playing, soccer loving, M&M eating, Weeties King .... a Birthday gift from his staff. Oh he eats dry Weetbix for breakfast too !!

.... well this all changed. I was really pleased with the golf one - the clients didn't like it ( though it was their requested theme ) so we went to a soccer theme. On proofing they often want a few minor modifications - first time a whole new body has been requested. The quote form has been adjusted so if that happens again I get adequately paid.
'The ol' onion bag' - goal net - an expression used by an Irish commentator Tommy Smyth on ESPN (possibly the worst soccer commentator in the world !!)

Nice job mate, mouth and nose make this guy. Why are tyey always rush jobs? Can't people get more organised?

Cheers Luke - 'rush jobs' they're the one's from disorganised people you wedge in around the other one's to keep the cash flow going - you know sleepy ol' Perth 'I was going to ring last week but .........'

Great work Terry! I really love what you do with these, you give them great style.

How do you get your jobs? Do you work through an agent or market yourself?

Tel said...

Thanks Andries - they can also be a pain in the A*** too !!

I get the jobs thru my Website mostly, type caricature in Google in Perth and up I pop. I also use Google Adwords and Yellow Pages web & book. Get a lot from word of mouth these days or repeat business. Fairly steady - keeps me in Shiraz and Merlot !!
