I’ve been remiss in my posts recently because I’ve been trying to make a little freelance money. I found a couple of websites where companies post contests and artists submit logos, book covers and illustrations. If you win you get money. 99designs and crowdspring if you’re interested…

I’ve learned a lot. Sometimes the best design wins. Sometimes it’s yours. Sometimes the client has no taste what-so-ever. It’s international so you see designs from all over the world. Did you know there is such thing as a “Cat Cafe”? Meow you do.

Well…I’m busy surfing contests and submitting designs and I come across this posting for “Seduction”. “Mind Hacks”. “Live”. I have to admit, I’m intrigued. It’s for a set of DVDs that tell men how to pick up women “at night” and “on the street”. I honestly thought it was called prostitution and you just needed money, but I was wrong.

There is an entire niche market for “programs” to tell you how to do this. To my girlfriend’s dismay I entered the contest. It was a challenge that I thought I knew about–I’ve picked up a couple of girls in my day. I was very wrong about what they wanted…

I submitted tasteful and elegant logos and pages to show off their product. Nothing. No response. Other designers submitted “sexy silhouettes” with nipples and everything and they got 4 out of 5 stars. I obviously was out of my league on this one. My real estate, dog party and coffee shop logos did fine, but I bombed when it came to “knowing how to mind hack a broad”.

Not one to give up I looked on Amazon to see if there were other products out there. I was amazed.

The author of one particular guide on Amazon is a “Master Pick Up Artist”

This DVD collection seems self explanatory.


I was devastated. I was under the impression that because I was a woman and dated women I knew how to pick them up. Wow, was I wrong.

With money from my Charity and Real Estate logos I’m going to buy a couple of books. I can’t wait to get started…

MTV:  Marvel has given an upgrade to one of its biggest superheroes.

As announced on “The View,” and confirmed by Marvel, a new comic written by Jason Aaron, with art by Russell Dauterman will launch ongoing this Fall, after the original God of Thunder loses the ability to wield his signature hammer.

“This is not She-Thor. This is not Lady Thor. This is not Thorita. This is THOR. This is the THOR of the Marvel Universe.”

Thor doesn’t just look like a lady with those long and luscious Norse locks of his — Thor IS a lady now and there’s no turning back.
