Dominate and Diversify





Unleashing Bold Initiatives

Every cartoonist has a bag of tricks for when they get writer’s block.

Mine includes exaggeration, combination and reversal, but one of my favorites is anthropomorphism, or more simply. . . talking animals.

When I get bored with a traditional scene or setup I drop in a bear, a mongoose or, in this case, a bunch of bees.  Then I set my mind on figuring out what’s going on. It’s a good way to lubricate the ol’ brain, and it’s just plain lots of fun.

The only problem is figuring out how to draw bees in a hive conference room, which I think I could still work on.

    Mmmm I am getting hungry for a “honey jelly peanut butter sandwich”! Maybe that could be a new item on the menu? 🙂

  2. This one tells a lot for me. After dominating the target market or the target place, its already time to move forward and look for other opportunities, to diversify the business. Thanks Mark!
