This is an interesting trend in business: two large competitors are both suffering in a rapidly changing business environment. Unable to keep up with the times, they merge together in an effort to maintain market share. One such merger was announced last week in the coupling of Office Depot and Office Max.
I'll provide some more behind the scenes work of this on behance later this week.

Hello faithful blog followers, facebook fans, twitter followers and beloved clients! Welcome to the first annual PICTURE-PUN-POSTCARD-PRINT-PALOOZA! To show my gratitude to everyone who has helped me and supported me in my career, I wanted to do something big that involved fun, postcards, and a lot of puns for everybody.
I have sent out over 100 postcards (see above) with an individual pun on the back of each one to everyone who has been there for me in the past few years. BUT, if I forgot you (I am only human) don't worry! I have figured out a way for everyone to join the fun.
THE PICTURE PUN PRIZES AND CONTEST!
5 First Place prizes, 5 Second Place prizes, 1 GRAND prize!
You'll notice 5 distinct posts below labeled A, B, C, D, and E. Each post has 25 of the postcard picture puns (and maybe some repeats, because my brain got tired). Whoever gets all 25 correct (or the most correct, as some of them are tricky) will be entered to win not 1 but 2 Animals in Suits prints of your choice!
Post your answers in a comment on the blog post (or, if you prefer not to give it away, shoot me an e-mail). All the correct answer submissions will be put in a bowl, and the winner and a second will be chosen at random. First place will win 2 AiS prints, second place will win 1 AiS print. Once you win, I ask you what animals you want, you tell me, and KAPOW- you get two signed prints in the mail!
BUT WAIT, THERE'S MORE!
If you can guess all 125, you are entered for a chance to win an ORIGINAL Sam Washburn drawing of EITHER an Animal in Suit of your choice or a caricature of your choice done "Congress" style (gotta play to my strengths). That's right, not a print but an original inked and colored piece of art for your mantle (or fridge).
I will announce winners at the end of the month, February 28th. Best of luck to everyone, and thanks again for all your support! And hey, if you'd like to double your chances you could always go for the...
If you tweet (@samuelwashburn) or favorite/share this post on my Facebook page, then you are automatically entered in for a chance to win the bonus prize! The Bonus Prize is a print of your choice from the 4 posted below.
And with that, I am officially done with the longest blog post ever. Thanks again, and off to the races!
