Criticism is easy, art is difficult ~ quote by Philippe Destouches

Today we’ll have a look at ‘criticism’ – I always try to refrain from being critical when my wife is doing something I don’t want to do! Here’s a cartoon that was born out of a recent decorating project – along with a few of my favourite quotes…
His 'n' Hers cartoon of couple doing the wallpapering - she's papering horizontally as opposed to vertically
Sandwich every bit of criticism between two thick layers of praise. ~ Mary Kay Ash
Any fool can criticize, condemn and complain.. and most fools do.~ Dale Carnegie

Don’t let anyone say you can’t do it. ~ John IlhanAnd my favourite…Never criticize your spouse’s faults; if it weren’t for them, your mate might have found someone better than you! ~ Jay Trachman

The above cartoon was produced for a ‘His ‘n’ Hers’ calendar some years ago.

Cartoon doodle scribe – Napoleon Hills 17 Principles of Personal Achievement!

Napoleon Hill’s work deserves to be illustrated in a cartoon doodle scribe!

For years and years I’ve been referring back to Napoleon Hill’s 17 Principles of Personal Achievement – and I put a lot of my success down to this great man and his work. I was looking for a motivational project to work on in my spare time to practice my cartoon doodle scribing, so thought now that’s a good one to work on.

Remember though, that cartoon whiteboard animations can be used to illustrate problem solving, product explainers, a new start up business or a presentation. Call Richard to discuss yours on 01246 209034 or email.

It  looks like it will be a long drawn out project though – so here’s what I’ve done so far…

‘Here’s the fax, LIVE LIFE TO THE MAX!’

Motivational cartoon for a Motivational Memo….

If you’re going to make the incredible effort to be born, then why not live your life to the MAX. It makes sense, doesn’t it? Why do it half shod? Why only let the throttle out half way? Put your foot flat to the floor, spin the wheels, burn some rubber and let loose with a ‘Yahoo’ as you tear up the road in your supercharged hot rod of a life that is yours to live. Too many of us try to play it safe and at the end of the road we find ourselves trapped in self-imposed security. But you know and I know that there’s only one life to live, so let’s LIVE it.

Danny Smell The Cartoonist from Hell!

I recently commissioned(Or tried to commission) a copywriter to do some copy for a web page I was putting together. I got excuse after excuse as to why things weren’t coming along very quickly. Which inspired the below cartoon…

Danny Smell - the cartoonist from hell. He is about to spin a big wheel that has a number of excuses on it like the Wheel of Fortune

Here’s some ‘excuses’ quotes to bear in mind…
Excuses are the nails used to build a house of failure. ~ Don Wilder and Bill Rechin
No one ever excused his way to success. ~ Dave Del Dotto
