News, but not the serious kind
High-caliber artistes needed…
Blog Guy, I need some career advice, and you’re the expert. I’m artistic, and people say I have a good eye for design. I would enjoy working in developing countries.
Have you thought about the exciting field of confiscation design?
No. I don’t know what that is.
See, in places where officials confiscate a lot of guns and ammo from drug cartels, militants, etc., somebody has to arrange the stuff artistically for photographers.
Compare these two photos above. You wouldn’t look twice at that crapfest on the left. But now look at the work of art next to it, where the ammo is appealingly arranged. This is how you get good media coverage.
Where do I get the materials to practice with?
From a magazine. I can send you a clip.
Magazine? Clip? Oh, I get it. Do you think I should join a design firm that does ammo arranging?
No, in the bullet business you don’t want competition. You want to be…
Oh, please don’t say it, Blog Guy…
…the lone arranger….
