    I’m a data analyst, and I found your cartoons really resonant.
    I’d love to use your cartoon “When you two have finished arguing your opinions, I actually have data!” in a presentation for my colleagues if you’re fine with that. I think this cartoon perfectly described why I love my job. Thank you!

      1. Timo,
        currently I am thinking of “the ultimate financial asset” and “it´s not you, it´s your data”…your cartoons make it pretty hard to decide 🙂

  11. Hi Timo

    Data, Analytics, BI and related concepts often send non-data professionals running the other way. Your cartoons make for amazing ice breakers that ease readers into keeping an open mind around very technical and difficult discussions.

    I can’t thank you enough for making these open and freely available for varied purposes.

    With your consent I would like to use your cartoons in our presentations and blogs.

    Thanks.
