As you are leafing through this month’s copy of Cosmetic Surgery Times ( April 2009 ) you might notice that they’re done a feature on using Social Media and that they’ve used a few of my doodles from Nowhereware to illustrate their articles. It’s really enjoyable to see my doodles “in print” – some hard copies arrived yesterday by post .
It’s been lovely to work with Teresa, one of the few people that seem to get my ahem, random sketches. I’ve even discovered what words like “Surgetiquette” mean ( find out here… @TAMatCST ). But the best part, for me at least, was that this was an enjoyable seed that grew in the rich compost that is social media.
You see, it all came about like this…
I wrote a blog article about Twitter which got taken up and passed on by a social media site. It then got linked to by a blogging surgeon ( who knew they existed? ) which somehow got my details in front of Teresa, the Editor at CST. Teresa, using the undeniable linky powers of hyperlinks then found my doodles, many of which are about social media and read them (all) and thought they’d be great to use in this month’s edition of CST. After a flurry of hand-written letters delivered by hand discussing terms we were ready to go (or maybe we used email).
The rest, as they say, is history… or in this case, doodles about social media in a magazine for cosmetic surgeons. Stranger things have happened, just not to me this week.
