FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Columbia, SC —Kris Black and Else Tennessen are pleased to announce the launching of their new venture, “MacComicStrip,” a comic strip blog for Macintosh computer users and fans. The site debuted December 24, 2005, at maccomicstrip.com.
The strip will feature new artwork and stories on a weekly basis describing the fun, quirks, challenges and foibles of being a Macintosh computer user. The Macintosh itself will take on new life and new “personas” in this lively comic strip. Commentary from Kris and Else will accompany the strip. An online shop with fan-fare is also available.
“We love Macs. That’s all there is to it,” says Kris. “We want people to know how much you can do with them, how they make art fun, and what a culture there is around them, We’re proud to say we’re Mac users.”
“People will love Kris’ winsome characters and clean drawing style. It’s fun to think of and write the stories for these strips. I like to incorporate pop culture and our own family doings to add to the fun,” adds Else.
Kris and Else became friends when they were working together in a graphic arts shop. They discovered their mutual love of all things Mac, art, and comics and a collaboration was born. Many conversations and Mac cheerleading sessions later, MacComicStrip was created.
Kris Black draws the strip. By day he is a graphic artist and art director for a government agency. He received his degree in graphic design from the University of South Carolina. Comics are his dream come true. Kris lives with his wife, daughter, and dog in Columbia, SC. Kris’ goal in life is to be a superhero.
Else Tennessen writes up their storylines and text material. She is a writer and artist based in Illinois, and received her degrees from Northwestern University, Evanston, IL. She works for a publishing company. Else lives with her husband, four sons, dog and guinea pigs in a suburb of Chicago. Else’s goal in life is to retire to the Shire.
Dear friends, Enjoy!
