Tick tock, it never stops. Time is always busy running away from us as we shuffle through a day trying to keep up with the non-stop motion. Whether we are at home or at leisure, time is moving along the day with us, tripping us up, and making sure that we account for our work and leisure in a measurable way. The constant action of time is what helps us make each day productive.
A man carries a timer with him as he moves around making it clear that he is responsible for his own time. Another man sits on a calendar while working, and the alarm clock has its alarm set. All of these symbolic images remind the viewer of time being involved in every aspect of our lives. The modern and light illustration focuses on the continuation of time and the importance that it has in every aspect of our day.
