"Unix and Linux System Administration Handbook (fourth edition)"

I was asked by a few people to explain the image on the cover of the "Unix and Linux System Administration Handbook (fourth edition)", so I'm posting this explanatory version... some of it will make no sense unless you look at the interior cartoons (like the Windows Gorilla), but I assumed anyone who really cared probably owned it, and would get these references. I also include the initial sketch, so you can see what ideas were nixed by the authors, and what was added...

Okay, so what really made me build a blog was "Illustration Friday", an awesome site that prods artists to do an image based on a weekly theme. 'Cause I have so many existing illos, this week I'm putting up one I did a few years ago for the Wall Street Journal on the theme "WARNING"... just to try it out. This ran with the article "Culture Shock: Learning Customs of a New Office".


So this is me, joining the blogosphere. I've been thinking of doing this for a while, to put up work that doesn't fit in the portfolio (or that might be a little too far-out to appeal to my potential corporate clients... does the Journal of Accountancy really want to see my spread from MAD?)...
