Searched for: woman overwhelmed

So, you’re shouting into a magnifying glass in the middle of the desert … is the overwhelming part that your tongue is searing from the sun rays or that nobody came to your meeting on a sand dune?

Woman with magnifying glass in her mouth in the desert.

Can anybody hear my big mouth??

What? What the hell is she supposed to be doing? Pleading for more spanking?

Don't mix nonsense with leather.

Don't mix business with pleather.

As I’ve said before, searching for “crazy” stock photography is a demented, yet playful, journey to madness. I would pay just to see this image used in an ad.

Do you want to touch my orbs?

Um, so, in what way is she tired? And what idea/emotion is she supposed to be expressing? Zany? Psychotic? Wasting my life?

And while she doesn’t appear the least bit sleepy, she sure makes me tired… tired of the “balloon head caricature” treatment. This trend will not die. This is our first balloonhead and, I assure you, there will be hundreds more. In my mind, there’s nothing more half-assed than scaling someone’s head in photoshop and passing it off as a “caricature”.

Kiss me, I'm trendy.

Well, it certainly is crazy. Searching for ‘crazy’ stock art is an equally slippery slope of nonsense and intense hilarity. It makes my job take forever, but damn it sure is fun. Of course, I don’t have clients in the high-fashion industry, where this would be filed under “fabulous”.

Does this jump rope make me look fierce?

Help! I’m falling and I can’t stop blasting my nips!

Thanks to John for this jaw-dropping entry, which shows you just what happens when you dare to test the bounds of stock art reality.

Although, I think I now understand the meaning behind the Hall and Oats song “Private Eyes”. They certainly are watching you, aren’t they?

Watching your every move...
