Will social bookmark you for spare change - The New Information Economy

Comic KongaWelcome to my first contribution to the first ever Comic Konga! What is Comic Konga? It is a little blog comic festival of sorts, thought up by Vishal. The idea is to post 5 days of original comic content to your blog. The official start was yesterday, but since I missed a day, I’ll just make up an extra day at the end.

I haven’t been drawing much recently, and I haven’t created a comic of any sort for years. Unfortunately I’ve also not got the opportunity in recent times to create much illustrated content for clients, so this is a great excuse to exercise my comic-ing muscles.

Day 1, my first attempt. I wanted to start simple, so after I got the initial gag into my head, I did a simple sketch with a ball-point pen in my sketch book. That was scanned in and taken into Inkscape. A vector tracing and some simple flat gray vector shapes later, it was complete.

Creating comic strips and even a single panel one such as this is a lot of fun. I love the combination of writing and art, and it’s something that can give you the satisfaction of completion fairly quickly. I am looking forward to doing more over the coming days. Hope you like it, and feel free to share it with others. I thing it is quite apt for the Web 2.0 and social bookmarking world we live in.

    1. Hi there. Thanks for your interest in this comic. I’m quite open to this being republished on your blog (great blog, BTW), as long as it includes attribution and a link back.

      The same goes for anyone else interested in doing the same. I would like to know when and where it is reposted though, so please leave a comment here with the links, in case the trackbacks don’t appear (it does happen sometimes).

      Glad you enjoyed this.
