Humorous illustration: Social not working

As well as joke cartoons, I draw humorous illustrations to accompany magazine articles. Here's a social-networking cartoon which I was commissioned to draw for a business magazine. Or perhaps it's a social not working cartoon, the idea being that they're communicating online but not so well in the "offline" world.

  1. Not far from the truth with this one Royston! I remember seeing people at uni talking to each other through chat, in the SAME room!

  3. Thanks, chaps. Bernie, I remember a scene in 80s movie Pretty in Pink where a guy tried to pick up Molly Ringwald that way ... so it's been going on a while!

  4. I like that - or maybe I should say, I'm like that.

    If there was only one cubicle it'd be a cartoonist - how much drawing do you get done between browsing?

  5. Thanks, Paul. Yes, it's a problem. People say "switch the net off when you're working", but you can't run Google Image Search on fresh air.
