Why are there cartoons on this blog?

The cartoons on this blog are social objects.

A social object is a conversation starter, an idea starter, a thought virus.

The goal is to provide cartoons to spark conversations and enhance relationships that revolve around living your passion.

A social object is the reason a group comes together in the first place. It helps define what the group has in common.

A social object starts a conversation. That conversation is more important than the social object that started the conversation.

My use of social objects has been inspired by:

  • Hugh MacLeod (www.gapingvoid.com)
  • Seth Godin (author of Purple Cow)
  • Jyri Engestrom (anthropologist and Jaiku founder)

The cartoons on this blog are available for free – for your personal use.

Contact me, if:

  • you want a privately-commissioned cartoon (a.k.a. social object)
  • you want to license the commercial use of one of my existing cartoons
