Every Picture Tells a Story

When it comes down to it I guess cartoons would be my chosen method of getting ideas across to others.I speak a number of times a week at seminars, I also write a fair bit, but cartoons require a haiku-like approach that helps ideas hit targets with a consistency that spoken and written words canít match because theyíre often not heard right or read properly.Cartoons are right on target; so direct.

There are two cartoons here from my Pension Conversations strip in Pensions Week.They were drawn nearly a year apart, but are aimed at the same target.The first one was drawn on a sunny early-spring day in Portugal last year and the second following a recent winterís day out in Smithfield Market up here in London.

The message, in words, goes something like: you can fool all of the people for some of the time, and you can fool some of the people for all of the time, but you canít fool all of the people for all of the time.I think Abraham Lincoln said something like that.These drawings are me saying it in another way thatís allÖ
