Bizarre Illustration I found

Postby Masato » Wed Jun 27, 2018 9:20 pm

Hey all

WTF is that illustration in the upper left next to 'NO/NON!'?

I took this picture myself outside the missus' studio, we were all baffled at it, lol. Someone got hired to draw that, someonw approved it, someonw paid a lot of money to have these stickers printed, and paid more to have them stuck on these electrical things all over who knows how many.

But what is it???? LOL what is it supposed to be? How does it relate to the function of the sticker/warning?

WHAT IS IT???? A chicken??

seriously, I wanna know who got paid for this

It makes no sense that illustration makes no sense how does this get approved????

This looks like a warning sign for kids to stay away from an electrical transformer.

People say they all want the truth, but when they are confronted with a truth that disagrees with them, they balk at it as if it were an unwanted zombie apocalypse come to destroy civilization.

Yeah but what it that goofy chicken thing? Your pic is perfectly sensible to get the message across, even the kid touching the box with a big X across it would be good enough but no someone thought they needed something else in the image. ...something completely illegible that doesn’t even remotely resemble anything in reality lol

Those were all over the green boxes when I was young. I just thought of it as a morally authoritative bird cartoon, upon further inspection its face looks crazy. I guess its supposed to be covering its face with a hand/wing hybrid. The guy who drew it probably got paid minimum wage.

^ lol

The thing is that I've been teaching kids drawing for many years, and I've taught young kids too who can't draw for shit. Usually I can see what was INTENDED, even if it was executed poorly. But in this illustration I can honestly not make any sense of what was intended, what could possibly be going on in the illustration. MAYBE its a wing? but what are those other shapes?

May sound like a light joke thread but its not really, lol I honestly find it baffling how this got printed. Its not just a BAD illustration, its an insane and completely nonsensical illustration.

If I am honest I would say its the work of a madman, lol
