The Story

I print all taleas posters in-house (very literally) on high quality, matte photo paper. This paper is much thicker than regular, and takes color much better than regular poster paper.

The Story Behind #80: Ideation Demotivational Poster

It’s rare that someone comes up with something completely, unquestionably 100% brand new. Even the biggest creations of the last 100 years - the iPod comes to mind - are piggybacking off of previous inventions. Look at Thomas Edison, who many credit with creating the light bulb. Let’s put it plainly: he didn’t. He built upon what was already there. His work was important, of course, but it wasn’t completely original.

That’s okay! The advancement of science and technology is all about building upon what already exists. Entrepreneurs and inventors cobble together new devices that take ideas and inspiration from what has come before. Standing on the shoulders of others is one of the most trademarks of creation. Don’t beat yourself up if you can’t come up with something that is completely new. You might not create the wheel but maybe you figure out a way to improve it.


The Story Behind taleas Demotivational Posters

Traditional motivational posters use a white frames, black background with a centered inspirational image and, mockingly, demotivational posters use the same light on black format with either an ironic image and sarcastic caption or an inspirational image with a sarcastic caption. In keeping with my whimsical and cartoony style I have decided to draw a collection of cute, funny, sarcastic, and light demotivational posters in my own style. While it's a very stark departure from the expected format I feel like it presents the dark and sarcastic tones in a more lighthearted manner.
