Cartoons For Salesmen!

This was one of my favourite projects of 2007. I had to produce twenty cartoons to illustrate the book, The Accidental Salesman, by Richard White.

The Accidental Salesman

Richard White is a charismatic and inspiring sales trainer and coach. An accountant by training, he found the he was ‘accidentally’ becoming a salesman. The key to successful business generation, he says, is a combination of ‘soft’ selling, telling customers ‘stories’ and getting to know your niche market.

But when you meet him, you also realise that a very important part to becoming a successful salesman is to be a ‘nice’ person and to spend time talking to people regardless of the possibility of a commercial outcome.

These cartoons were drawn to a very tight brief which made them very easy to do as Richard already had the images  he wanted in his mind’s eye.

The simplicity of the line, in unfettered black and white, serves to get the message across cleanly without distraction. This type of cartoon works well in books and also in Powerpoint presentations and on the Web.
