10 Things That Require Zero Talent!
Here’s a cartoon I did recently that was printed out as a large poster for a client Tough Glass in Australia. I’m sure it will help their workers become more successful in a short time!
They kindly let me reuse the image here and on my website – hopefully it will help you become more successful too?
1. Being on Time
2. Work Ethic
4. Body Language
8. Being Coachable
9. Doing Extra
After reflecting on these attributes, I realise that you get most of these from me if you commission any artwork! 🙂
I’ve been an cartoon artist for over twenty five years, and I’ve drawn all kinds of comics, posters, postcards etc. I can tell you that they come in very handy when looking to motivate people. I’ve done them for companies that used them to inspire their staff, their sales team and even their colleagues to work harder, faster and better.
You’ll be amazed at how effective they can be. It all goes back to the simple fact that a little humour goes a long way toward helping people to remember things. Also, as it’s done via a visual medium, that helps too. There’s that old saying: “A picture is worth a thousand words”. So, if you get the right images, coupled with your words, you’ll have a winning combination.
I'm down at the moment - but I'll be back!
I can do both postcards and posters, created from a brief that you send me. And don’t worry about time; I don’t have to have it via snail-mail. You just e-mail me an outline of what you need, and I’ll create a rough sketch as a first draft. After that, you review it, make additions, subtractions and/or changes; then I’ll go to work on finalizing all of the artwork.
Once I’ve got things just the way you want them, I’ll send you the approved artwork. You can get them in either full colour or black and white. It all really depends on your budget. After all, colour does cost more, but you might think it’s worth it.

Still, no matter what you need me to create, you’ll have posters and/or postcards that are tailor-made to your company and your message. Believe me, they are a great motivational tool.
I have to include a shameless plug every now and then to try and drum up some future business!
“There ain’t no free lunches in this country. And don’t go spending your whole life commiserating that you got the raw deals. You’ve got to say, ‘I think that if I keep working at this and want it bad enough I can have it.’ It’s called perseverance.”
Businessman and Former CEO of Chrysler
Perseverance. - I want it bad enough!
Here’s a few of my other favourite motivational and inspirational quotes…
The difference between perseverance and obstinacy is that one comes from a strong will, and the other from a strong won’t. – Henry Ward Beecher
Don’t be afraid to give your best to what seemingly are small jobs. Every time you conquer one it makes you that much stronger. If you do the little jobs well, the big ones will tend to take care of themselves. – Dale Carnegie
When the world says, “Give up,”
Hope whispers, “Try it one more time.”
Looking forward to hearing your comments! Richard
I’m just as committed to cartooning as this guy is to footballing…
Here are a few of my favourite ‘Commitment’ quotes…
“There’s a difference between interest and commitment. When you’re interested in doing something, you do it only when circumstance permit. When you’re committed to something, you accept no excuses, only results.”
“Desire is the key to motivation, but it’s determination and commitment to an unrelenting pursuit of your goal – a commitment to excellence – that will enable you to attain the success you seek.” – Mario Andretti
“Individual commitment to a group effort — that is what makes a team work, a company work, a society work, a civilization work.” – Vince Lombardi
I’m stuck on an urgent deadline for a number of cartoons to illustrate a self development book – top secret I’m afraid. But came across this quote while doing a bit of research…
“Perhaps the most valuable result of all education is the ability to make yourself do the thing you have to do, when it ought to be done, whether you like it or not; it is the first lesson that ought to be learned; and however early a man’s training begins, it is probably the last lesson that he learns thoroughly.” Thomas H. Huxley
Ok , it’s not really motivational – but it made me smile!
