Sales: Looking Good For Some





Unleashing Bold Initiatives

I’ve said before that I do a lot of sales graph cartoons. I don’t exactly know why, but as obsessions go, hey, I could do worse.

One day I was drawing a series of bar graphs going down. As I drew them, I wondered if there wasn’t a cartoon where I could show a downward trending graph that everyone was really happy about.

After further rumination (that sounds better than staring blankly at the carpet), I thought the bar graphs looked like a staircase, and the above cartoon was born.

Now if I could just get that old Slinky song out of my head!

  1. Mark, This one took me a minute. I had to look closely at the graph. But once I got it, I couldn’t stop laughing. If you’re Slinky, steps down are good news. – Anita

  2. Yeah, this is almost too subtle, but I like when a cartoon makes me work a little sometimes. The reward is always a little sweeter.

  3. Mark: Slinky the toy, going down the stairs?! 😉
