I’ve been drawing cartoons since lockdown started in March 2020. Since all lockdown restrictions have been lifted in England during summer (touch wood!), I want to start sharing some of my memories from the pre-COVID period in my cartoon.
When Ichi was little, he used to tell me about his memories before he was born. When I asked him how he chose his daddy and mummy, he said, “I went shopping and bought you.” “Daddy was very expensive! He is a game programmer, see? I was rich so I was able to buy him.”
I asked, “How about mummy?” He said, “Oh you were cheap! You are a children’s book author, see?”
My son’s Equations:
Daddy = Game Programmer = Expensive
Mummy = Children’s Author/Illustrator = Cheap
I hope I will be able to change my son’s perception of my occupation soon!
