In an MSN conversation my fellow designer friend was telling me that people seem to be pushing his buttons for their entertainment. He was really stressing out about it, and I wanted to turn these lemons into lemonade. Both of us are Apple fans so I used the “i” reference to say iPush your buttons too. He laughed, and so I took it a step further and drew the first image, then sent it to him. He laughed even more and praised the image, which motivated me to render another.
The end result was an image that brought together numerous inside jokes/stories. He essentially became the button that everyone was pushing.
