As we are talking about optimising channels this month. We thought it would be an ideal time to share with you the irkafirka blog which hosts the strapline “anything you say may be taken down and coloured in”.
We found out about irkafirka over at the BBC website a couple of months ago in a post 'In pictures, Tweet modern'. Since then we have been regular visitors to their blog. The BBC articles provides a walk through on how the illustrating of the tweets began. The premise being that, Nick and Chris aim to illustrate a tweet a day, in a turn around of 24hrs of the time the random tweet went out.
The image above, is one of our favourites, taken from their blog. It is quite topical for Rocktime, as Poole, where our head office is based is full of Seagulls.
Please do go and find out a bit more about Nick and Chris, over at the irkafirka blog, learn more about their rules in their quest to illustrate a tweet a day, point 6 being “if we stop enjoying it, we’ll stop” over at their website. Note also rule 7.
For Twitter fans the irkafirka blog is a great place to pop in from time to time for a giggle, and if you are looking for a fun illustrator, then hey, you may have found one.
