Inspired by a description for an internship I saw, I thought about what it meant to stare at a piece of blank paper and come up with an idea that is going to sell something.
Here’s the result:
First up, McDonalds. I was surprised that I couldn’t find an ad like this when I looked for it. But I couldn’t so I’m going to take credit.
Next, Nike. I played around with some headlines: Make History, Make an Impact, Make it Count. But it looks better with only “Just Do It”
But do you need it now?
To illustrate the benefits of a video on demand service. The biggest benefit is that you don’t need to go anywhere or wait for your movies to come in the mail. You just turn on your TV and pick what you want to watch.
I did a storyboard for this campaign. It would look a lot more impressive if I knew how to draw, but thanks for trying to follow along!
To show that the brand I arbitrarily chose, Hefty, was the strongest of all the trash bags. To do this I put the trash bags in positions of power.
Positions such as arresting and catching a bad-guy, being the muscles on a body builder, addressing the country as the president of the USA, and as Donald Trump. Donald Trump because we could finally put his hair where it belongs (I know it’s drawn poorly, but that is supposed to be his hair at the top of the pile of garbage [like a king of all the garbage] in the trash bag)
To make people aware of a specific operation that a client at my internship offered. Staten Island University Hospital offers a less invasive heart procedure that only requires 3 incisions. 3 lines; perfect amount for a smiley face.
Look at those perfect areolas. And I said I couldn’t draw!
The tagline is “Minimally Heartbreaking–Minimally Invasive”
To get people interested in a bank that was offering more than just your run-of-the-mill free business checking. When you signed up for an account, you received some cash and a laptop.
Thus, the idea was born that you were getting even more than free.
Hey, that bird’s wearing a top hat, cool.
This product is made up, they are extra-absorbent(/strength?) tissues (Tom’s Extra Absorbent Tissues, to be exact). This way your next breakdown won’t be traumatized by a dirty face and or a dry nose.
It’s okay to cry, catharsis, right?
If I may quickly explain the drawing, he has one crumpled up tissue in panel 2, and then a second crumpled up tissue in panel 3. That’s efficient.
I also decided to do something different here, a radio script! I know, exciting stuff.
Here is the script:
She claimed she liked sensitive guys. She appreciated that you bawled every time Rose said she'd "never let go."
Apparently, she appreciates Giovanni's abs just a little bit more, though. But at least with Tom's extra absorbent tissues your play count for the classic song "Boy's Don't Cry" will always be higher than the number of tissues you use, well, crying.
I played off a concept that… well, I made it up! But, if you think about it (REALLY THINK ABOUT IT) the way we eat string cheese is pretty inhumane and cruel. Just ripping it to shreds and what not. Poor string cheese, they never saw it coming, yet they never complain. This is for you, string cheese.
**Speculative ad for string cheese
I found this second one more difficult to draw (as any talentless artist eventually gets tired of pretending their shapes are comprehensible). But the string cheese is mourning, and she is wearing a black veil while looking into an open casket. The graves read, “Mike piece 1,” “Mike piece 2,” “Mike piece 3,” etc. etc. All right, I will shut up now.
If this were actually a thing it would be fun to redesign the packaging as a jail cell. Just ideas, you know.
I redid the Sharks ads. The original is ‘This Is Sharks Territory.’ Mine is way better. Listen to me, Sharks organization! I take cash and checks..
*Drew Carey is used only because it’s more annoying to find normal ‘before-after’ pictures of men then you would think.
*Those boxes should look more like a scoreboard. And they would if a person with more artistic capacity than a 2 year old was making them. Deal with it.
Alt headlines: It’s like playing golf.
You want the lower score, right?
For once, your buddies will envy your lower score
Drew prefers playing golf now.
