When Seattle software giant Microsoft purchased Skype in 2011, the company committed to create a contemporary working environment to house the service. Consulting with Fantagraphics curator Larry Reid and others, project manager Jason Faulkner recently completed finishing touches to the Skype complex, located in two buildings on Microsoft’s sprawling suburban campus. Last week Faulkner gave Reid and Fantagraphics associate publisher Eric Reynolds a guided tour of the stunning new facility.
This part of the complex explores the architecture of communication using breathtaking floor-to-ceiling Chris Ware imagery as a backdrop. The glass partitions double as white boards (though Faulkner was quick to observe that staff had so far been reluctant to blemish the pristine spaces with unsightly scribbling).
Probably the last strip I’m going to do for a long time for my long-running I HEART RECESSION comic.
I’ve been writing and drawing it in starts and spurts since late 2009, though I did miss the initial wave of OMG-Everybody-It’s-A-Recession. I really did want to hit the 100 mark though… I still do.
So if you all have any fun war stories to share – send them my way!
