This Sunday I’ll be unveiling a new original feature here on the Inkling blog. Normally I reserve Sunday’s for funny and interesting comics I find in the newspaper that relate to Social Media. And I’ll still be posting those from time to time. I find that sometimes the comics, in just a few pictures and words, can sometimes say more with less, all the while making a statement, both poignant and humorous.
Recently, however, I remembered Jeff Burkholder, a cartoonist who is a part of our local Twitter community. I approached Jeff with the idea of creating an original Social Media comic for my website and he loved the idea and ran with it, and on Sunday we’ll debut the comic, The Social Life of Frank & Linh.
In the meantime, here are two examples of Jeff’s work in his regular comic, Zoidland. The first example is a bit of a precursor for the idea Jeff eventually came up with to create the comic for Inkling. (You can click on the images to make them larger for better readability)
When we debut The Social Life of Frank & Lihn this weekend, I’ll have Jeff explain a little bit about the concept he came up with for us.
