Drawings by Fru Pinter

These are some of my favorite pieces of art that Fru has made various articles on my blog.

SaaS Company for Sale

We made this post to help an anonymous friend selling his software company. The illustrations helped make it less boring!

Calendly Message Examples: How to Make Your Meetings More Friendly

I am really passionate about phone calls! I love them. But most people are using Calendly wrong.

The illustrations for this article helped convey some ideas that meeting links can be more thoughtful.

Man standing in a front of calendar filing his nails. Above him 'MR BUSY' banner. A guy with two paper planes in his two hands. One of them is labeled: inbound - proceed with caution. He holds it very carefully. The other he is about to launch is labeled OUTBOUND, with a speech bubble saying: Careful!

My Favorite Podcast Interview: NSL with Ari Meisel

One of my favorite set of blog drawings! This is a podcast that I did with my very good friend Ari.

These Stupid Barefoot Shoes Ruined My Feet

Arghhh. I missed arch support. This article talks about how using a standing desk and pounding my feet on concrete all day while wearing Vibram Five Finger shoes and other no-drop shoes didn’t do me any favors.

How a BDC Made $31M from Commercial Ice Machines

We used illustrations to share the story of Easy Ice and the business development corporation that fueled their growth.

Investor Relations Firms

What is Investor Relations (IR) and why do companies have these teams? Fru’s work helped again to make a cold, boring business topic more fun.

Cartoon of man in red tie (business attire) watering a plant, meant to represent a Company Cartoon scene that looks like an office party, balloon, three people, and a banner in the back that says: Welcome to Investor Day

I Finally Bought a Tesla

This was totally unique: Fru helped illustrate on top of some photos for one of my most popular articles.
