Many moons ago, my friend Alex Lash and I tried to do a satirical website. This Dlibert spoof was one of the things I did for it. It’s tasteless I know.
If I ever had to do a comic strip, I’d do one called “Idea Guy.” He’s a superhero who’s really good at thinking on his feet and motivating people. He saves the day by dropping into meetings and encourages people to “Think Big!”, and not let themselves get caught up in the minutiae.
He does however, have a weakness, and it’s accountability. His archenemy Devil’s Advocate is the only person who knows this, and it’s his life mission to put Idea Guy back in “the box” where he knows he can’t do his best thinking.
Why the two can’t get along is part of their complicated back story, which I’ll try to expand on in future posts. For now, stay tuned…
