Our own public version of Where's Waldo

I saw a mock up of the work product of a graphic designer friend of mine today that happened to contain a picture of a another friend who shall remain nameless. (For those of you who know him, your guesses as to his identity will be confirmed as correct if you know the answer to this question: which friend was the first to dance in a nightclub wearing a yellow jumpsuit?).

I was sad to learn from my designer friend that the photo of our friend was just temporarily there as filler and was likely to be replaced, I found myself thinking, what a shame! It would be very fulfilling to see this person's face on the final print of the material being produced for use on a national market. And, honestly, no one would know the difference. The photo is professionally done, and relevant to the company's corporate image. It could kind of be our own version of "Where's Waldo?" - only, "Where's (for lack of the name) yellow jumpsuit guy?" (To be clear, though, the yellow garment itself is not pictured.)

I told my graphic designer friend that I would pay him $10 to leave the photo of our friend on the design. I also think that others of you might want to add your monies to the cause of keeping this face in the design work. Any bidders?

As a witness to both events, I must point out that he has worn a yellow jumpsuit in public, and been paid to dance in a cage in a nightclub, but he wasn't wearing the yellow jumpsuit while he was being paid to dance.

I was one of the sponsors of the cage dancing, by the way (wow, that phrase just looks really bad in print!), so I figure I'll let others contribute to the photo fund.

If the cagedancing suit were in the picture, I would for sure add $10.

The friend will remain nameless but not faceless. It was a good laugh to hear their reasoning and I would have rather used at least one of the pics of Mr. Yellow Jumpsuit; but the man has different ideas of what things should look like. You will be glad to hear that our friends' back did make it into the final cut though. Yes, you heard me right! They FINALLY made a decision!!! This has been a real learning experience. Thanks so much for everything, House of Grace!

I can't believe it - either the appearance of the back of Yellow Jumpsuit man or the statement that THE MAN actually made a decision on the project. I thought surely that would drag out for another 3 or 4 working days!
