The most popular images from the set

The brief was to create some cartoon images that could be used by a group of optometrists. The theme we decided on was “isn’t it time you saw your optometrist?” with scenarios revolving around situations where an animal is mistaken for something else (or vice versa) by the person in need of an eye test.

These cartoons have been printed on postcards, posters and fridge magnets. The seven featured above have been by far the most popular, although all the others have been used as some point by one of the optometrists. The top left “walkies” picture is by far the most used, although my favourites are the cats and the bulldog, because it was so funny working on the long suffering expressions.

I am a fan of good eyecare. Mainly because my eyes and hands are key tools for my talent. I would also urge parents whose children are struggling at school to get their vision assessed by a qualified pediatric optometrist before you rush to get a prescription for Ritalin. Not just any person with the correct equipment, but the people who are properly trained to detect problems in child eyes. Two of my children who were diagnosed with “astigmatism” by a bog standard optometrist, were then diagnosed totally differently by a pedeatric optometrist and the latter was spot on!

    I love the latest mugs post but I keep returning to this pic! I love what you’ve done and have tried to think of ONE original idea in the same genre and it’s so difficult. You’re amazing Lori – very clever!

      Thanks Mandy. The “walkies” one was the start and after that they all just flowed. There are others involving tortoises, snakes, chickens and a few more dog and cats as well. My absolute favourites are the cat scarf and the washed cat, I could FEEL the indignation when I did them!
