Lauren put up a post detailing how she thought that the idea for Kronos City came about, and I promised her that I would put up the real story, which isn't as interesting as all the mystery...I was out for coffee with my housemate, Ruth, and our friend, Elaine, and Ruth made a comment about how she measures time in streets or streets in time - I can't quite remember which. It was to do with how long it takes to get somewhere being determined by how many streets there are between you and it. Anyhoo, that planted the idea of streets made of time, which changed into canals of time, which was the starting seed for Kronos City.
I'm not entirely sure exactly where the karma idea came from. I was walking home from work (it's about 40 min) and I came up withthe whole karma inc concept, in a pretty similar form to how it ended up, although there's a few new ideas and subpolts that came together from some other stories that were floating in my head.
So there you have it...

I am endeavouring to put up a blog post every Saturday. In honour of the first chapter of Kronos City going up online (at http://www.myebook.com/index.php?option=ebook&id=14544 if you haven't checked it out), I thought I would put up one of the earlier Karl the Anorexic Vampire strips. Karl's a character I dreamt up a few years ago. He's since then found a home in the cosy surroundings of Kronos City.
