Well, the new year has proven to be off to the same start as we left the last one. The economy continues to spiral downward and, as a result, companies continue to have lay-offs. Such is the case with the company I work for. And as it is whenever lay-offs happen, the duties of the fallen are put upon the remaining employees at no extra pay or compensation. So I have been a bit busy as of late and have not had much time to attend meetings (I guess that's the silver lining), and therefore produce my motivational doodles. So this time I am presenting some of my sketches from last year that I never uploaded. I found them drawn on scrap paper and post-it notes and randomly hidden among other documents far less important. Enjoy.
