Self-promotion is a tricky thing. Huh?

Shooting the messenger is , also.

Damn Richard, I LOVE the FED UP design. That's a real double-take!

[-] 2 points by richardkentgates (3269) from Fort Walton Beach, FL 2 years ago

lol, the fedex ain't mine dude :D

[-] 1 points by GypsyKing (9780) 2 years ago

Oops. Sorry about that :( I do know how to put my foot in it at times.

[-] 2 points by richardkentgates (3269) from Fort Walton Beach, FL 2 years ago

Hey, keep up the good work. I in no way want do discourage your efforts.

[-] 2 points by richardkentgates (3269) from Fort Walton Beach, FL 2 years ago

word. thx for the word of support.

I think it's very funny, Richard. But it is subtle, so maybe it requires a double-take on the part of many people to full get it. The FedUP example is more brazen and obvious, so it gets an instantaneous response. Personally, I like both of them; the direct anger of the FedUp one, and the more nuanced, layered Citizen one that is yours.

Good work.

A-ha!

But, it might take something more than a link to Wikipedia to make your point. You see, that Wikipedia article . . . . doesn't have any crayon drawings.

lol, ok. Good point. I have added an example.

[-] 1 points by gnomunny (6647) from St Louis, MO 2 years ago

Heh heh. I was kidding, of course, but if that example doesn't explain it perfectly, nothing will.

I added my website too, I have some other goodies and it's had a makeover to promote my utmost and longest lived ideological position. Not like it was making me any money anyway.

[-] 1 points by gnomunny (6647) from St Louis, MO 2 years ago

I'll check it out.

[-] 1 points by richardkentgates (3269) from Fort Walton Beach, FL 2 years ago

Turn your volume down :)

[-] 2 points by gnomunny (6647) from St Louis, MO 2 years ago

It drowns out the tinnitus!

[-] 2 points by richardkentgates (3269) from Fort Walton Beach, FL 2 years ago

lol, word

[-] 1 points by richardkentgates (3269) from Fort Walton Beach, FL 2 years ago

yeah, I wouldn't admit to being that naive either.

I like the new logo.

[-] 1 points by richardkentgates (3269) from Fort Walton Beach, FL 2 years ago

Thx, I went through 3 versions and took a total of 3 hours.

What's wrong with your Logo? It looks just fine to me. What's the issue?

[-] 1 points by gnomunny (6647) from St Louis, MO 2 years ago

The 'citi' part of his logo is identical to the Citibank logo.

[-] 0 points by mahatmayasar (3) 2 years ago

Ah,didn't pick up on that.

[-] 1 points by gnomunny (6647) from St Louis, MO 2 years ago

It is subtle.
