Re: Job Security


It's a tough economy. It seems as though we have to work twice as hard to keep the jobs we have.

Some times, you just have to make sure there is still a need for the job in the first place.

Job Security.


A little closer look:

Re: Job Security

I really like the sketchy style with this and the concept is great.

Thanks Andy.
I had some good feedback on this while I was working on it, made it all that much better.

Long division. They absolutely refuse to do long division in the woods.

This design always makes me laugh. Such a good pun here!

I'm not sure how effective the shirt is without the clever title.

Thanks for commenting, I do appreciate it.

I feel it can stand on its own. The pants, hat and gas can are a dead give away.

I think it's obvious that it's Smokey. That's certainly not the problem. But people would assume it's funny because Smokey is starting a fire and not realize why -- economic problems and such that the clever title suggests so well.

To true, quite valid point. Either way its a funny concept; starting fires to keep working or starting fires because you promote prevention.

Thanks for checking back.

I work at a summer camp and we have a Smokey figurine with a fire danger meter. Anyway, we all think he's super creepy without a shirt, so we always dress him up. How funny would this be on him?!

Re: Job Security


SORRY THIS GOT REJECTED.... we all know Smokey would just put it out after he started it.

Thanks for votes, I appreciated all the support.

Apparently, this is a little to aggressive for the woot sensors. (Amazon?) Hopefully the design was not in waist, and a less restrictive company will print it. But, who knows...
