Sulci Collective said...

this is really nicely done. An idle part of my brain wonders whether the red circling is in fact a lipstick ring?

I love how the visual aspect makes a great idea even better. I might polish up my resume and see what happens.

Clever! The format really makes it work!

Tony Noland said...

I love this! Not just the text, with all that's left unsaid, but the graphic format is expertly done and ties it all into a work of art.

Lacy said...

I agree with all the posts above. Very nicely done.

John Wiswell said...

I smiled at the "dastardly plans" bit. That's when it all came together for me. And look, they circled your ad! So applicants should be on the way.

The life of a henchman. I think I could do it, and then work my way up.

Very clever and nicely done!

Genius Icy. This would fit perfectly into any number of journals and literary/art periodicals. You are always innovative with your ideas. Not for the first time, I predict great things for you.

ps. I used your 'robin' photo prompt for my flash this week.

Tim VanSant Writes said...

Absolutely brilliant. The format really takes it to another level.

Steve Green said...

Marc - No, just red marker.

LynnCee - You never know!

Adam - Thanks.

FAR - Just fancied trying something different.

Tony - One of the benefits of teaching graphics.

Lacy - Thanks!

John - I hope so!!

Cathy - Thanks!

Craig - That's always a good career plan.

Justin - There are plenty more coming with this theme.

Tim - Always good to experiment.

Steve - What's the worst that could happen?

Sonia - Great!

Raven - The supervillain is advertising for henchmen, and it's the henchmen who need to make up a resume. That's why they're supposed to send their emails to an address.

Michael - Ah, experience with death rays is a definite plus.

I love the concept and it made me giggle (in a good way) when I read it. Of course, you know this because you were there when I read it. Great work, as always! :D

As for being suitable for the role, aren't I already in your employ as a henchman? You're not firing me, are you? *sadface* Or am I getting a promotion? :P
