We pitch or "bid", on average, about a project a week. Fortunately, we have pretty high success rate -mainly because most of our work is repeat business or personal referrals.
Sometimes we'll create artwork for the pitch, more often we'll be contracted to make some pitch art -a stipend generally, but a demonstration of a "serious" client.
It's easy to forget to these little jobs. Occasionally I'll come across remnants from one.
In honor of the likely passage of our nation's first universal health care legislation, here is art from an aborted corporate video.
