Tom Fishburne—marketer, blogger, cartoonist extraordinaire—just published his new book of cartoons called, This One Time at Brand Camp. I've been a long-time fan of Tom's cartoons (I've had the volume fairy cartoon taped to my wall for a couple of years), so I was excited to get my hands on the book and start reading.
Unlike most of the "serious" books I've read and profiled here, Tom takes a decidedly more humorous look at the things that marketers and clients think and do. He is very good at spotting the absurd, silly things that we all see (and shake our heads at) on a daily basis.
Each page features a cartoon plus the story behind its creation, which gives the reader a nice look into Tom's thought process as he created the panel. It's a great book and worth a look: buy the book here.
Tom was kind enough to give me two copies of his book. I can really only use one, so I'm giving the second copy away. Want me to send it to you? Leave a comment about the most absurd/silly marketing moment from your career. I'll choose a winner from the list sometime next week. Who knows, maybe Tom will do a cartoon of your experience?
