Nancy Bea said...

Wow, this is terrific. It'd be a great poster (and I'd buy one too!)

ming said...

Really cool concept! Are you the boy in the artwork? I know I am sometimes.

Great Stuff!

Poet said...

Signs, signs, everywhere there's signs.... Good stuff brother. Makes you wonder what we would be capable of if there were less of them.

Jack Snider said...

vhrsti: Thanks! I'm glad you liked it.

nancy bea: I was thinking it would make a good poster also. I'll have to look into that. I'm flattered that you'd buy one.

ming: Originally I was thinking of my 7 yr. old son and how negaitivity affects kids, but then I realized it really applies to us all.

poet: For some reason No is just easier than Yes.

Most excellent, Mr. Snider. Good drawing with bonus social commentary that's right on the money.
Dare I say, "Sign me up for more"? :P

Jack Snider said...

Thanks Anthony!
Hah! Consider yourself "Signed".

Nice clean style. I love the characters animated movement contrasted against the cold, hard, stationary signs.

I just realized that the kid is looking at the small "Why Not" sign. Like I said before, I bow to the master.

Jack Snider said...

Thanks Steve, Jana, Nina, Emily, Eoin and Ben/poet (I sometimes miss obvious stuff like that too).
