N.C. Winters is always drawing. When he isn't making comics, doodling or working as a freelance graphic artist, he spends his time painting pretty pictures for galleries from his home studio in sunny southern California.

Haha, so true.
Ah, gotta love the client from hell!
so true.. I hate when that happens.
N.C., I’m an editor, not a designer, but I always find your cartoons right on target. Thank you for sharing your talents with us.
i think i know that guy…
i have a client like that. he seems to think #CCCCCC is a great background color….for alll the content on a website….. right….. lol
Sounds familiar, I had a client like that.
Italy is the same
I had one of those. After 8 months of continuous “I thought I told you that I wanted it this way”, he ended up taking the work to someone else “because you are working too slow”.
I usually don’t ever know if I should fire the client or continue to give in.
Argl ! I’m living this right now ! Please, send me an exorsist to cast that client back to hell !!! (Experienced exorsist only please as i d’ like his money no to go in hell with him but in my paradisiac pocket :p)
LOL trs21219 – I like the way you used a hex code in the middle
Like going out to buy a new shirt and asking the sales assistant: “Hi, do you have this shirt in #FF9900?” – I think web terminology is getting to us.
And after three iterations of color changes client completely changes his mind.. a throws away the whole concept..
Every client goes to hell
my old boss (before i went freelance) used to stand behind me and say, “that yellow isn’t quite right. add 1% magenta to it. ahhhhh, that’s it. perfect.” whatever dude.
your cartoons are always right on the mark.
I got that call this morning. I’m glad my cellphone manufacturer placed a nice big ignore button on my phone.
His face in the last shot is hilarious!! I feel your pain buddy!!!
Just be sure to tell such clients that a certain number of changes are included in your contract. And, after they’ve exceeded that number, they’re going to pay extra.
Sometimes, this brings the changes to a screeching halt. It can also mean that you could be billing a lot more for the project.
We’ve all been there before…
Haha N.C.! We still use Vintage Taupe™ here.
That’s so true lol, I’ve also experienced this before.
This is why I only do design work hourly.
I went to art college, but until a previous client, I never knew there were so many different colors that are the same color.
Doesn’t make sense?
This has to be the best comic ever! Awesome! And sad at the same time.
“Just be sure to tell such clients that a certain number of changes are included in your contract. And, after they’ve exceeded that number, they’re going to pay extra.”
Martha, that’s the spot on solution to this one. Good comic.
Thats 90% of my clients right now…!
That at least happens to me once a week.
Am I the only one that charges per every change that wasnt specified in the original email?
yeah it happens sometimes…. such as when they make my steak just a little too #CC0000. idk why they dont understand it lol… i actually had someone comment on my shirt the other day… it reads, “There are 10 kinds of people in this world, Those who can understand binary and those who cant.” it took me about 15 minutes to make them understand that 10 in binary is two lol…. maybe its only funny to us programmers
Hell yea! so true! most of them don’t know what they exactly want!! lol
Dirty white! Throw some mud on it and coffee rings please, and burn the edges while you are at it.
True indeed. I have once sliced into xhtml/css/wordpress tree times. Everything was ok, but he did not like the designs he did himself. However, I was paid well for that.
ooo bloody hell! soo true
this situation is what I currently have with my client! so annoying!
HA! I am dealing with two clients just like that!
