"I used to be embarassed because I was just a comic book writer while other people were building bridges or going on to medical careers. And then I began to realise: Entertainment is one of the most important things in people's lives. Without it, they might go off the deep end."
To all of us treading the path in less prestigious sounding field, a legendary man just lived his life proving that making people smile is just as impactful. We might be wondering: "Can we even make a living out of our works? Can our stuffs even sell?" But hey, wasn't he also in that exact stage of life about three quarters of century ago? 😉❓
Upward and onward to greater glory. That’s what he wished us. Excelsior! 💪✨
On a side note, this started off as a 10-15 mins pen quickie, but then I had the urge to add some gouache and it ended up being a 1.5 hours thing and I forgot to shape his moustache and butchered a few things 😅 Well it's still a quickie though aha 😂 ...Yes, I have 3 exams tomorrow (actually 4 but I've made up my mind to ditchthelastonecoughs). And yes this was procrastination,,,
