True Tales Of A Cartoonist: Parental Pride
I’ve had a ridiculously hard time getting the comic out lately. So many conventions, freelance work, and desperate fixing up of a rental property has made it hard. But that’s slacker talk. SLACKER TALK I TELLS YA!
Anyway, the comic is happily going again. Today’s true tale of a cartoonist happened at Paraconwest recently. My nine year old daughter ran around the whole con drawing sketches of everyone. People were just throwing money at her. Meanwhile I was at my booth staring down at my one single commission that day feeling…. Bitter.
I was super proud of my daughter and she legitimately kicked my but in the drawing department that day. It’s hard to compete with an adorable little redhead. Especially since I am none of those things.
