[More thoughts from my new book etc.]
PLUS CA CHANGE, PLUS C’EST LA MEME CHOSE
“The more things change, the more they say the same.”
Back when I worked in the advertising business, I spent about a third of the time working on the drawings, and about two thirds of the time working the day job.
Then after many years in the trenches, I managed to quit advertising and ended up being a full-time cartoonist.
Basically, I still spend about a third of the time on the drawings, and the other two thirds taking care of business i.e. working the day job.
So what does this prove?
Basically, that “The Sex & Cash Theory” is alive and well, that the *tense duality* of managing art and commerce is still going strong.
Yes, a lot has changed. But I’m still the same person, with the same flaws, using the same brain, doing my best to hustle.
And that will never change.
The big difference now is, I no longer expect it to.
Plus ca change…
