i like to move it, move it...

Here was a piece in todays Washington Post. It's about people, who's possessions are held hostage by movers they hire to help them move. Basically, the moving companies quote one price, and then once at the new home demand much more or they'll keep the home owners stuff. i really liked the idea of people's stuff being held hostage, or for ransom. the people are really trapped by the proposition. what are you going to say, "I dont want my stuff!"?? theres really no choice in the matter. Heres some ideas i had going in -I really liked the above idea, and pushed for it. Thankfully, Diamond the AD knew better.
She liked the idea of having the home owner in a jail - or at least trapped - and with this idea we moved forward a bit. here was the first attempt:Diamond wisely suggested that we make the person two people - and add a mover and moving van in the background. good ideas! Heres that revised rough:I've noticed my work getting much more ... comic-ee looking lately - that might not be the term i'm looking for, but its looking different. at first, i wasnt sure if i liked it - but im starting to. Who knows how long it will look like this, but its fun for now. (note, it may look NO different to you, the reader - I'm just a weirdo)
