Carl Wiens
A series of tubes
I get calls to work on technology articles. The internet is a phrase that usually causes slight shudders to ripple through my core when I hear it mentioned. Normally a cliche-ridden dusty trek.

I was thrilled, however, to have a chance to developed a series of illustrations depicting social media. I worked with Heidi Howe, who gave me a great deal of freedom to play with these images.

The opening image below is a play on the infamous Ted Stevens analogy. I always enjoy drawing octopi and insects, so I featured a multi-armed multitasker, tweeting & facebooking amongst other things.

A few of the spots below: Twitter, Blog Central, Facebook & YouTube.
