FUN: Clients From Hell!

I’m a photographer who covers a large, fairly rural area with their business. Travel time and cost is often a price-affecting factor, as it can vary greatly. I was asked to produce a quote for an event.

Client: Please ensure the fee you quote covers the cost of traveling to the venue.

Me: OK, so which venue are you going to be using?

Client: Oh, we haven’t decided yet.

Christoph Niemann is an artist who’s bursting at the seams with creativity. When he’s not drawing clever and insightful cartoons for the New York Times and other prestigious publications, he creates clever illustrations for fun, using everyday objects to enrich and complete his daily creations.

Niemann calls the drawings his “Sunday Sketches” and fits them in between his more serious illustrations, which include both political cartoons and column illustrations for the Times Magazine and the New Yorker.

We’re big fans of using everyday objects to create drawings because it’s such a fun and inclusive art form! Javier Perez and Gilbert Legrand are just two of the many artists we’ve covered who love this artform!

If you like Niemann’s work, check out his books on Amazon as well! Read on to see his answers to Bored Panda’s questions about his work.
