Time for a short break!

Wonkie is taking off very well from meagre pickings of less than 1,000 visitors in the first month to well over 1,000 unique visitors yesterday alone. On behalf of the team, I would like to sincerely thank everyone who has read, laughed at, scoffed at, posted comments on and subscribed to Wonkie cartoons – we plan on keeping you coming back for more in the year to come.

We’ll be on a short break from 20th December until the 2nd January – or perhaps a day or two later if the hangover is really bad. We have some exciting stuff planned for Wonkie next year including:

  • Special cartoon coverage of the South Africa 2009 elections
  • Subscription for individual comic strips (e.g. Bollywood Nights) rather than all of them
  • Additional cartoon strips on various themes (e.g. Office humour, Dating)
  • Surveys on topical issues with results presented in cartoon format (e.g. BBBEE; politics)
  • Star rating system for cartoons

If you have any feedback, ideas as to what you’d like to see, or even if you fancy making cartoons with us for a bit of fun, please drop me an email at pratish (at) wonkie.com. It would be great to hear from you.

Finally, a special thanks to Michael Trapido from Mail & Guardian ThoughtLeader and Gareth Cliff from 5 FM, both of whom were very encouraging and were kind enough to give us media newbies some exposure by publishing some of our cartoons on their websites.

We wish you all well over the festive season – keep safe and please don’t drink and drive!
