Adding a Little Intrigue to Your Small Business

I love spy stuff. Bond, Bourne, Boris and Natasha … I love ’em all!
So, when the term “cloak and dagger” made its way into my head, this was sort of a slam dunk. But drawing that CIA logo on the desk? That was a cartoon code it took me a good hour to crack.
The words need to be discernible, but not necessarily legible. The head has to read eagle, not chicken. And that starburst thingy in the shield is tougher to get right than you’d expect. Looking at it now, I think it was worth it, but still … small business intrigue!
You just never know when a little detail in a cartoon is going to kick you in the behind.
