Rock's Really Lame Motivational Posters

I was putting some pictures on PhotoBucket, I stumbled across some of these pseudo motivational posters. Some really lame, offensive, pseudo motivational posters! I though to myself, "HEY! I can do that!", and the rest, God help me, is history. Some con pictures, some friends and family, and a few others.

Before I am a caricaturist, I am an editorial cartoonist at heart. Sometimes I just have to make a point, even if it isn't a good one. I hope enough of you will share my warped sense of humor that this was a worthwhile endeavor.

Please feel free to laugh and retaliate!

Everything I need to know about life I learned at the NCN Convention

Everything I need to know about life I learned at the NCN Convention

Compare your work to your work, not to others. There will always be somebody better than you.

Good is often the worst enemy of best.

To have a friend, be a friend.

You reap what you sow.

What goes around comes around.

Just because someone looks different than you doesn't mean they don't speak English. ARRGH!

The Irish are all nancy boys or disco queens.

If you love doing something, it stops being work. If you hate doing something, it is worse than work.

Be prepared.

Asian chicks dig me.

Inspiration can come from anywhere.

Roger Hurtado isn't a megalomaniac. He's just really good. Well, maybe he is, but a hell of a nice one!

Keep moving or the world will pass you by.

With the possible exception of Adam Pate, most people are a hell of a lot taller than their avatars.

It hurts falling off your pedestal if you have clay feet.

Sean Gardner has a really pointy nose.


Asian men and women both look good from behind unless you are Mike Giblin and you get there after Joe Bluhm is done!

Rock and Roll is still king.

Its a poor craftsman who blames his tools.

Macs crash too!

Sleep is overrated.

Kidney stones still suck.

Everybody likes Barenjager.

Adam English is an awesome caricaturist as well as musician.

Great caricature doesn't have to be brutal.

The only person who can make you feel second class is you.

Tad wants to talk about sex when he drinks.

Start at the beginning.

The truly great caricaturists are all people people.

The Japanese bring their own Paparazzi to conventions.

Caricature can be a lucrative business as well as a joy.

The NCN is about people.
