We’re Not Dead Yet!

February 20th, 2007 by Kevin Cheng :: see related comic

Sorry about the extended absence everyone. Contrary to [some theories][1], we’re [not dead yet][2] but appreciate the concern. We’re hopefully back on schedule now. Things have been rather hectic as you might imagine. Not that I’m using it as an excuse but there’s definitely some announcements to make.

A quick update of what’s been happening in the world of Kevin and Tom. Well, I helped out in the launch of a product called [Pipes][3] and Tom nearly died over the holidays (but he’s ok now).

In other news, I’m running another workshop on [Communicating Concepts Through Comics][4]. This talk has been well received over the past year in various venues and I’m seeing more and more companies using the methodology and smoe have even started [creating templates][8].

The workshop will be a full day affair that teaches the technique in depth and - you don’t need to know how to draw! Reviews of last year’s workshop were very positive but we haven’t had a ton of registrants this year so we may end up canceling it. If you’re considering this workshop at [IASummit][5], [register sooner rather than later][6]. You can check out the [full workshop description][7].

But if you just want regular snarky design comic goodness, come on by every Friday (Pacific time, at least).

Welcome back! I was beginning to think the world was in hyperdrive and weeks were taking much longer to pass than normal.

I’d like to know — the May-June 2007 ACM magazine has the new OK-cancel comic… why isn’t it posted on this site?

Kevin Cheng wrote:

Ian: hahaha. That’s great. But we _were_ just resting! Or perhaps stunned.

Sara: ACM comics are not the same as the ones here. Those OK/Cancel comics are a “special edition” which, if we ever do a collection, will be included =)

OK/Cancel is a comic strip collaboration co-written and co-illustrated by Kevin Cheng and Tom Chi. Our subject matter focuses on interfaces, good and bad and the people behind the industry of building interfaces - usability specialists, interaction designers, human-computer interaction (HCI) experts, industrial designers, etc. (Who Links Here) ?
