ARTWORK The VC Comic Strip Original Digital Artwork - First Comic Published Comic 1.0: "I Get It, Go Faster"

DESCRIPTION You are bidding on the original digital artwork of first comic in the The VC Comic Strip series, which ran from 1997-2001. This is the first comic in the series (dubbed "1.0" in true dot-com fashion).

A PIECE OF SILICON VALLEY HISTORY The comic strip was created digitally and ran on the web and also in upside Magazine (if you remember that.) This is a truly unique and valuable art piece, an authentic piece of Silicon Valley history. The strip was also published in 2000 in a printed compilation by Barnes and Nobles's print-on-demand subsidiary Fatbrain. The artist Kathryn Siegler has gone on to become a renowned fine artist, whose work had been featured in museums and private collection.

ARTWORK The artwork is in hi-res format, and includes the original file information and printers mark.

ABOUT THEVC COMIC STRIP Concocted during the halcyon days of the first dot-com era, The VC Comic Strip is half biting satire, half prophetic vision. In 1997, a newbie VC named Robert von Goeben (future toy industry maven) and commercial artist Kathryn Siegler (future world-respected fine artist) came to San Francisco from Los Angeles, only to marvel that there was an industry more up-its-own-ass than entertainment. Soon they figured out the most succinct way to document the era was the time-honored use of sophomoric humor. The VC was a huge hit in the day, appearing as a regular feature in Upside (remember that?) and featured in the likes of The Washington Post and The San Francisco Chronicle. As we approach its 20th anniversary, The VC Comic Strip now serves as a reminder that those who ignore history are bound to be once again screwed by 4X liquidation preferences.
