It appears that MIR not only employs supernerds, but apparently they have a wannabe comic/artist in their midst. MIR strategist Jesse Brightman is having a ball at other people’s expense old school style; with pen and paper. Here’s how it works: he chooses someone in the ad industry to draw, then he/she has the power to nominate the next person he draws, and so on. He then posts his illustrative attempts here.
Brightman explains his strategy: “Every day I will give myself 3 minutes away from being a strategist to explore my non-existent artsy side. I will draw a new Twitter avatar of somebody in the advertising community (chosen by the previous day’s draw-ee), and draw them in less than 3 minutes. I’m not an artist. At all.”
Kinda funny, kinda new, and goddamn we hope he chooses our avatars next. Draw on, you crazy diamond.
