The company that I once worked for was big on motivational posters. They were in every hallway, cafeteria and conference room. I’m not really sure how effective they were in keeping the workforce motivated but I enjoyed them for the stunning photography that was on some of the posters. A few years ago, Emo came out with a few “Motivational Posters for Underachievers” that sold very well to the crowd of people that buy motivational posters. They’re no longer available but he did accomplished his goal of selling enough posters to buy a lifetime supply of toys and Gerber Turkey Baby Food.
You can see another poster here and hear some great music here.
And I like the song too.
Thanks, Malin. It’s one of my favorite Dylan songs.
That Emo is a creative genius! 🙂 I like the photography on those motivational posters. I don’t know how much they actually motivate anyone, but corporations surely like to believe that they do – kind of like team building exercises!
Thanks, Paul. Emo has been very good about sharing his stuff. He has been a creative muse since he came and he definitely pays his own way.
Static electricity discharge is probably a more pressing concern.
I had to look at the top picture for a few seconds and enlarge it before I figured out what it was.
We don’t have to worry about static electricity since we don’t have very much carpeting. But the two Tesla Coils in the family room can give you a jolt.
You only have two!?
. . . I mean . . . it’s OK; two is perfectly fine. Lots of people only have two.
We downsized a bit when we moved here.
I had no idea that Emo was a businesscat!
I used to have this poster on the wall of my office, back when I worked at the Awful Place:
This is the type of poster that inspires a guy like Emo. And it takes a lot to inspire him.
That second image is shocking!
I know. Makes my hair stand up straight.
I live it Ken, it is just beautiful!
I have always liked photography on posters, it really takes on another dimension.
That Emo has got it going on. 🙂
Thanks, Jimi. I wanted to do something from scratch, too, and this is only one of a few I worked on. It’s a fun exercise.
I always thought Cats in general probably spent a lot of time thinking about things but EMO is definitely a “big picture” type.
Ken, somehow when Google Reader closed down I lost the RSS subscription to this blog and the notices of new post…that situation has now been remedied.
Thanks, Earl. Good to hear from you. He’s now in semi-retirement, much like his old man, but he is still amusing.
Great Poster – I think I, personally, would say something stronger than ‘ouch’ if struck by lightning, but we’re talking abut a very special cat in EMO.
Thanks, Andy. He wanted to say “ouch” in Klingon but we thought that would inhibit the sales potential of the poster.
