M.K. Brown on Cartooning (and work)

As seen in the Cartoon Art Museum in San Francisco yesterday:

As we all know, cartooning requires enough independence and self-absorption to spend hours drawing alone with only a radio and a cat for company, often without a clue as to what happens next, yet remaining perfectly entertained. Of course, it also demans a certain degree of craft in order to be understood, especially when the idea is, shall we say, complicated.

Beautifully put. This does not only hold for cartooning, but for all deep work. Minus the cat.
