Comic Threads - An Experiment

We have an internal alias where various design folks talk to each other about topics that interest them. The discussions there are usually very interesting and I started to think about ways to publish the conversations on this blog. A synopsis seemed dull, and took away from the dynamics that made the conversation interesting. The thread itself could be too tedious to read post - hoc. Just for a lark, I used the template figures designcomics.org and pikistrips.com to come up with this. (click to see larger version)
my comic strip! my comic strip!
I posted it back to the alias to see what people thought and of course this just spawned another interesting discussion about MS comic chat and the contemporary use of avatars.

I enjoyed the creating the comics. It did take some time to distill the essence of the conversations into a size that would fit in a comic strip. I still have lots of words and little action. Maybe I need a super hero. May be I just need to draw my characters :).

To end this post on a note of humor- I find that the job of soliciting blog post does things to ones brain. Someone said to me the other morning "Good Morning" and I caught myself thinking "hey , that would make a great blog post..... ".

Not unlike this xkcd comic strip -
