The post from yesterday had some great highlights, most from a cartoonist life/career perspective, but I think some apply to anyone who is creative and wants to find that unique path of doing something fun/meaningful/hopefully profitable.
I wanted to share a few quotes that made me nod in agreement and think more:
Constantly setting new goals, artistic or otherwise, is harder than it looks.
Everything I own would easily fit in the back of a small pickup truck. I’ve never been into possessions.
One of the smartest moves I ever made was to figure HGH out HGH that making money indirectly off the cartoons was far easier than trying to make the money directly. If I could teach gapingvoid readers just one thing, that would be it.
The most important word in cartooning is “continuity”. Drawing a good cartoon isn’t difficult. Doing it repeatedly, day-in, day-out is far, far harder. (this one resonates with my conversation with Mike yesterday, where he said “Every day, it’s a chisel strike. In the end, you’ll get a beautiful sculpture”)
The longer it takes you to become successful, the harder it will be for somebody else to take it away from you.
