Office Shark

Did they ever really put water coolers in offices? In all the places I've worked, I can't remember ever seeing a single one. I suppose they must have had them somewhere or it wouldn't have become such a cliche.

Maybe water coolers are one of those things that only appear in comics, like bags of money with a dollar sign on them or a burglar wearing a pork pie hat and domino mask.

For some reason I like drawing uptight, humorless cartoony bosses.

Drawn in Photoshop on the graphic tablet.

Here's the original sketch. If you look closely, you'll notice the line work on the shark looks much different than the boss and the water cooler. That's because the original sketchbook doodle consisted of the shark only. After I scanned him in and started drawing him, I felt like there needed to be something more. I thought about it for a minute and got the idea to show him next to the water cooler with an angry boss looking on. So the boss and the cooler were sketched out onscreen, rather than on paper.
