 I don't consider myself a salesman, so I defer to Fine Art America's marketing expertise.
It's beyond me to realize there's a market for cigar smokin' cowboy totes for moms.

I suppose, what good advertising comes down to is simple word alliteration.

The kind used by one of the most famous salesmen of all time, W.C. Fields...

Why imagine him alliterating this:
Just in time for Mother's Day... please remember our mom's magnificent tote. "Why, there's no timelier tote than the toddler's toke tote."

Jack Elam

Jack Elam

A young Jack Elam.

William Scott "Jack" Elam (November 13, 1920 – October 20, 2003), was an American film and television actor best known for his numerous roles as villains in Western films and, later in his career, comedies (sometimes spoofing his villainous image). His most distinguishing physical quality was his squint. Before his career in acting, he took several jobs in finance and served two years in the United States Navy during World War II.

Elam played in 73 movies and made an appearance in 41 television series. His best known works consist of Once Upon a Time in the West, High Noon, Support Your Local Sheriff, and the television program The Twilight Zone.

Andrew Cuomo

Andrew Mark Cuomo (/ˈkwm/; born December 6, 1957) is an American politician, author, and lawyer serving as the 56th and current Governor of New York, since 2011. A member of the Democratic Party, he was elected to the same position his father, Mario Cuomo, held for three terms.

Born in New York City, Cuomo is a graduate of Fordham University and Albany Law School of Union University, New York. He began his career working as the campaign manager for his father, then as an assistant district attorney in New York City before entering private law practice. He founded Housing Enterprise for the Less Privileged (HELP USA) and was appointed chair of the New York City Homeless Commission, a position he held from 1990 to 1993.

In 1993, Cuomo joined the Clinton Administration as Assistant Secretary for Community Planning and Development in the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development. From 1997 to 2001, he served as the U.S. Secretary of Housing and Urban Development.

In 2006, Cuomo was elected Attorney General of New York. In May 2010, Cuomo announced he was running for governor in the 2010 election, and he won with 63% of the vote. During his first term, New York legalized same-sex marriage and enacted gun control legislation. In 2014, he was elected to a second term with 54% of the vote. He is running for a third term in 2018.

Thank you for all your kind comments, Don.  I did enjoy going through your work too.  It is really quite amazing to be able to create compelling art with a simple graphite pencil!
