A popular drug magazine hired me to do an illustration for a story about a teacher who got arrested and served 3 months in jail in Thailand just for having drugs in his system. My art was killed because it was too much of a"downer.“

After several rounds of back and forth over billboard designs for a local zoo the marketing director at the zoo emailed saying she had tested the latest proofs we had sent her on her computer. She informed us that she had opened the files and ran past her screens to simulate a driver passing a billboard.

I was freelancing at an agency working for a Very Big Software Company, making little promos and graphics for one of their subsites using images from their own stock photo library. The images were fairly generic and interchangeable, so for one of them I chose an “ethnic” student-type instead of a white businessman for a change. The feedback that came back from Very Big Software Co. was to change it, because it looked like “some third-world woman asking for a handout.”
A client is worried that someone will steal their logo from their website. They need us to protect the logo somehow and are willing to pay to have the right mouse button disabled.

Client: Our site has been hacked! There are little orange boxes on it!
Me: Yes, those indicate RSS feeds. You’ll see them on all major sites.
Client: Well, we should remove them, they look like hacking.
My client was an outdoor events company and upon seeing a competitor using a blue sky in their advertising, emailed me telling me to call this company and let them know that they had to change the colour of the sky in their ads,“because we own copyright of blue skies in this country so no-one else can use them”.
Can you make each page on our website fade in and fade out when you click on a link? You know…like PowerPoint?
Last night I was sleeping and Jesus came to me in my dream and had this image in his hand. He said that he has blessed this image and this image only for the book. If I use any other image I am going against the will of our lord.
