And That...Is Why You Don't Steal

I came up with this idea a couple years ago, and since then have been waiting for some client to pitch me a story about the dangers of stealing music...maybe it hasn't happened yet because there pretty much aren't any dangers to stealing music! I decided to work it up as an illustration anyway because I think it's a cool concept, if not the most facile in execution. Enjoy!

Clever concept. I'm working on a Ipod themed illo myself at the moment.

Somebody's gotta be doing a story on this that needs this illo!

It could also be an illustration about the problems with DRM locking you in to a specific device/manufacturer, although the EMI/Apple announcement of no DRM on their music might make the story moot.

Dominic: Thanks! I'll keep an eye out for your illo, and prepare to be floored by it!

Steve: Yeah, I suppose that would work (or would have worked) too. Another idea it might work for is having someone be a slave to technology...I know every time they announce a new, beefed-up iPod, I want to rush out and get a new one (Thankfully for my marriage, I don't!). I suppose in that case, an iPod replacing the ball at the end of a chain might be the way to go.
