‘BusinessTown’, The Beloved Richard Scarry Characters Brilliantly Reimagined as Silicon Valley Stereotypes

The Digital Prophet
What Value-Creating Winners Do All Day™

In “BusinessTown,” illustrator Lunch Breath has brilliantly reimagined the lovable anamorphic Richard Scarry characters of “Busytown” as the stereotypical technology employees and personalities that can most be often found in places like Silicon Valley.

An ongoing project attempting to explain our highly intangible, deeply disruptive, data-driven, venture-backed, gluten-free economic meritocracy to the uninitiated. With apologies to Richard Scarry.

In 2014, cartoonist Ruben Bolling had also reimagined technology roles playing a large part in a modernized Busytown.
