Steve Elkington-Calder Chism Cartoon Archive Along With Secret In The Dirt Photo Achive Now Shareable Via Flickr
Houston, TX (April 30, 2012) - For the last two years social networking and learning platform Secret In The Dirt has been creating and amassing a large cartoon and photo archive available to members at Secret In The Dirt. The images and cartoons, published daily are enjoyed by thousands via the Secret In The Dirt website and Steve Elkingtons Tweets via his @elkpga Twitter account.
The company has had interest from multiple major online publishers to use the images. To make the images more widely available Secret In The Dirt has uploaded them to Flickr. This move now makes them available to publishers large and small to supplement their content creation efforts. New cartoons and images will be added daily and will be available to be published free throughout the web through a creative commons license that requires simply that publishers refrain from modifying the images and that they provide a link back to www.secretinthedirt.com
in exchange for use.

Elkington states "We've had great interest in the daily toons that I create with our fantastic artist Calder Chism and now our image vault with photo's of the games top players is creating a stir. As we've done with our video vault which we recently published to YouTube we want to make our images also more accessible to publishers and allow them to be shared more widely throughout the web."
Partner Mike Maves adds "Believing that casual bloggers and major publishers alike should have access to the material we felt that a democratic approach to distribution of the images was the best way to go. Using Flickr helps us to do this. We want to support all who wish to grow interest in the great game of golf."
The company will continue to build and release its cartoons and images through, the Secret In The Dirt main site, Twitter and now for the benefit of publishers via Flickr.
