The Kale Test Trip

Now and then, I draw cartoons for clients, too. It was even an entire comic strip that I created for a web company in November 2016. The company is located in Northern Germany and they invite all employees, partners and clients for a traditional Kale Trip every February. The invitation for the 2017 trip was decorated with my comic strip. I contrived a little story that combined the idea of a test run for the self-made kale trip carts with some geek humour.

Panel 1: “How could this happen?!” – “I don’t understand it neither.”
Panel 2: “The use cases were meticulously defined! The flowchart was perfect!” – “All unit tests were green!!!”
Panel 3: “Hmmm – maybe we should have done the E2E tests in the parking lot first instead of heading for a 10-kilometer test drive straight away …”
Panel 4: “And maybe we could have done without a brandnew chassis and remote control …”
Panel 5: “Come on, let’s get home before Christmas Eve …” – “Yeah, and let’s do things again that we’re good at.” – “Oh yes – software, web, apps … Sigh!”
