Suit(s)?

Exhibit A:













LitigioU.S.- you ever hear about those crazy lawsuits? ex.: lady sues McD's for hot coffee spill, lady sues Disney- says kids were traumatized due to seeing Mickey take off Mickey suit, and now, as I was posting this, I read this- ironic.

So what's the suit here?
Man sues fast food joint for making him large?
Man sues chair?
Chair sues man?

The chair is in for it. Gotta love the suit on the man. I think some kid out of the picture is going to pull the chair over to another table as the guy sits down, and the guy'll have to sue the kid's parents. Great post... hadn't even thought of this application of the word.

I love this - and i think that chair's definitely got a case. Great linework and so expressive.

I heard about that case over here - couldn't believe it!

I hear ya Andy--nobody can take the blame anymore for anything--it's always someone else's fault. As for the drawing, love it! The efficiency of line here shows how skilled you are as an artist. This is just plain great.

Excellent big guy drawing!! The eyes on the chair are hilarious...nice touch. Just last night on the news I heard about a judge who's sueing a dry cleaners 54 million dollars for losing his pants! A judge!!! C'mon America, give me a break.

Thanks Rrramone hahaha- yeah- he should take it even further, and sue the ONE responsible for 'everything'- but that might not go so well with lightning, etc. I didn't just write that.......

Being in the law business my self, I agree with the view that people should accept responsibility for their actions and yet, we are so easily manipulated by those graphic design types.

Happy Tuesday Luisa- hahaha never would sue you!
Huggsss

Hey Neil. I try too put thought into visual form- and let viewers (juries) take from it what they may, and interpret it with whatever (life) experience they bring to the table. I keep it real/honest- don't want to manipulate in the negative/dishonest sense- if that's what you mean? I'm an artist- not con-artist. Oddly, for years I was connected to legal communities all over the U.S.- on occasion I still am- I've seen much behind "the closed doors"- positive and negative. Like anything else- it [the U.S. justice sys. and all people involved] has to be looked at on a case by case basis. Some cases and participants are total bs- some are almost pure justice. We just need a system overhaul- starting with changing the jury system, and the dubious selection process.
I have a responsibility to speak up- though I'm dim and have no real solutions. I know the death penalty is barbaric- simple solution = get rid of it.
