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?

See, it’s clear that his butt has literally been worked off – you can tell by the stunning photoshop rendering of his ass in the wavy shape of a puzzle piece.

A puzzle piece of ass.

WOW.

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...

Seriously? My agency paid for this image as a part of a subscription. Too bad the price wasn’t adjusted for inflation from 1989 when this image was taken …. back when high-hip mom jeans and scoliosis were cool.

Listen up children and listen up well. There is a reason that 99% of magicians are relegated to the birthday party circuit.

It’s because they’re freakin’ creepy.

I’m really sorry about this magicians of the world – but you’re just a smattering of white face paint away from being a clown.

This image makes me want to break out in song. Ahem.

“Rollin down the street

With my briefcase

Sipping a latte

Laid back

With my mind on my money and my money on my mind.”
