This is an ad I did for Blind Billy’s Discount Blinds and Window Treatments. I kept my mouth shut on this one and cashed my check. By all accounts his store was pretty successful and wound up basically being a really cheap Kohl’s.
During the early 90s there was a brief fad of “alternative proteins.” The APA tried to get people to eat things like snake, raccoon, macaque, and even box turtles, which we marketed to replace turkeys. It didn’t catch on, but I do recall being invited to a Passover seder where the Z’roa, or lamb shank, was replaced with egret.
I’m currently working on an ad campaign for this really interesting self-help organization. I’m not sure if the client is, like, the baby in the image below, but I know I write “our dylan” on all their invoices and an adult man in a business suit wearing a diaper (like, outside…over his slacks) picks up the artwork and pays me.
Not my best work, but the clients loved it.
