A Comic By Mike Bannon

Cecil Vortex has an interview with Bizzaro's Dan Piraro. It's pretty crazy you should check it out. Covering his start, what keeps him going and how he had to keep coming up with an idea a day even when his world was crumbling around him.

"Within a couple of days, she moved out, and that was just the end of a marriage. And I didn't even know we were having trouble. It was like, Monday everything was fine and by Wednesday my entire world had fallen apart. My kids were crying. And, you know, it was just a really, really horrible time. At the time I was convinced that, were it not for the kids, I would kill myself. That’s how miserable I was. And yet I had to write a funny idea every day and keep my cartoon deadline going. And it just felt like such a curse. That was the one time in my life when it was really, really hard."

I don't know why all retired people think -- Golf. personally, I am retired and seek to do other things instead of golf -- golf is too much like hard work . . . I used to play golf when wining and dining a new client. Rather, I like to play bowls and do other things like reading, writing and idea generating.
