Poor pictogram man; he’s obviously in a state of complete despair over the loss of his car. I wonder if he’s based on someone real?
Has anybody compiled a web site of unlucky pictogram people? That’d be a fun project.
Actually maybe he didn’t lose his car. Maybe he just got outbid on the signed copy of the Doug Anthony Allstars book “Book” which I’m selling on Ebay. (Was that plug too subtle?)

Like it! Which railway carpark is it?
Years ago in Canada I saw a “lock up your valuables” warning sign in a car park which featured a pictogram of a thief that resembled the ham-burglar from McDonalds. As if thieves actaully look like that!
Does the DAAS Book “Book” include a CD of Paul McDermott singing “Throw your arms around me”?
Can never hear the song “Billy don’t be a hero” without thinking of their twisted version (he was a herod?!) *snort*.
Don’t know about unlucky/despairing stick figures, but there is always this :
Roger, Glenhuntly station. The sign pole has been bent a bit, which is why the sign is at a slightly odd angle.
Nathan, happily for those who are sick of it, no, no CD with the book!
Keat, that’s excellent, thanks! Have submitted the pic for it, will see if it gets accepted.
You beat me to it Keat! I love Stick Figures In Peril lol!
OK here is mine from Vancouver.
It’s not a man, it’s a set of siamese twins (see, there are 2 heads there!) who have obviously had a difference of opinion about where they’ve parked their car.
I love looking for alternate explanations for stupid designs!
