Tissue Box Art Remains A Mystery. HELP ME!! Chinese Factory.



Check out this tissue box I had the pleasure of viewing the other day. And the tissues were pretty soft to boot. A tissue box full of happy people. Enjoying each other's diversity. They all look pretty happy don't they? I bet the Chinese artist that was asked - or should I say FORCED - to make the art followed the instructions of her master at the factory.

"You get in there and a paint the picture of happy people all different skin colors and ages for the tissue box!. You make them happy. Now get to work. Next project is two lady talking by a trickling stream for a tampon box. We behind schedule!"

The Chinese Norman Rae sheepishly walks by the foreman and into her painting cell. She was at her wit's end. Being harassed by the boss man for many years.

"I will NOT just paint picture of happy people! I will paint a picture of how I feel! The world will finally see!

And so she did. And the art can be seen on the top of the tissue box*:


*Seriously. What the hell is going on here??

Look at that face! What were they thinking?

TrinaLikesWine said...

What is she thinking? She's thinking of how horrific it is to blow your nose, that's what...

Dr Zibbs said...

Trina - Who doesn't blow their nose? A cave person?

Indigo Roth said...

Hey Zibbs! Is that last one supposed to be sneezing, maybe? Good grief, how did that make it past quality/sanity control? Roth

Dr Zibbs said...

Indigo - that's a great theory! But do you think they would put that on the tissue box? I may need to call their customer service to get an answer.

GOD KNOWS why I know this but...they have people who scout around looking for artwork they like. They will contact artists and ask them if they would design a tissue box for them! This piece of art probably originally had NOTHING to do with snot, noses or tissue.

So there you have it! Oh wait! I found someone who designed a kleenex box:

Just keeping my finger on the pulse of America for ya!

TC mystery solved. And i must be dumb because i used to work with commission artists for years and this never crossed my mind.

The Jules said...

Don't blame the artist. They have 2-ply their trade somewhere.

AHAHAHA!

Dr Zibbs said...

The jules - very punny.

Annika said...

I always wonder why the boxes are so colorful when the tissues are just plain white and boring.

Dr Zibbs said...

Annika each box should contain just one mystery tissue.

Zibbs, not a product, but have you seen this one taken in North Korea of their illustrious leader and a typical Korean "happy" family. Look at the terror in their fac:http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/08/20/kim-jong-un-family-photo_n_1812069.htmls.

Finally an illustration of someone who ACTUALLY looks like they are sneezing and in need of a tissue. I never look cheerful and all smiley when I start slingin and flingin! W.C.C.

Dr Zibbs said...

Jadedj - I've seen those and love them.

WC - Wow. It never occurred to me that it might be somebody sneezing.
