Résumé de concours
I need one drawing/illustration for an article. The title of the article is "Shitware" and the topic is poorly created software. "Shitware is software so poorly created that it dehumanizes the end-user. If you've ever used software which consistently generates feelings of frustration and anger, you've likely encountered Shitware." More keywords are unreliable, user hostile, slow, buggy.
The article uses some bad language, which the illustration can reflect.
Idea of what the illustration could contain (but feel free to use your own imagination): A frustrated/angry user in front of a computer/laptop. Insulting/arrogant error message on the computer screen. A parodic version of a corporate, motivational poster in the background.
A cartoony look would fit my taste :)
UPDATE Aug 21st:
Based on the entries so far, I've got the following inputs:
1. The setting is corporate/in an office. The character's clothing should be formal.
2. Laptop/computer with visible screen, not phone.
3. Some stupid motivational poster in the background would be great. How about "Work harder, not smarter!"?
4. Suggestions for on-screen error message (maybe we could fit several): "An unexpected error occurred - again. Please place a ticket IT will ignore. Error code: FUBAR."
Thank you so much for all submissions! It's going to be hard to pick a winner!! Based on submissions so far, here is some general feedback:
- Format: Landscape (sorry for not saying this earlier).
- An expression combining anger, sadness and contempt at the same time. I know I'm asking for a lot here :)
- On the poster: Some sort of slick looking overly handsome office type holding his thumb up. Maybe he uses his other hand to lift weights?
