I came across this old cartoon of mine today- I drew it when I was still living in New York, back in the late 1990s.
Back then, the whole urban boho artist crap was a lot more interesting to me than it is now.
Now it just makes me cringe…

Sometimes, framing your life such that you are the hero in some dramatic and purposeful story makes it easier to get through the day. Some people just take it further than others. 🙂
