The last cartoon, 2003

marfa the last drawing 1401

Back in 2003, after I had been drawing the business-card cartoons for around half a decade, I had reached a point where I was thoroughly fed up with them (not to mention, equally fed up with life in general).

So I decided I would stop drawing them. Forever. I would move on. Immediately.

I would just draw one last one, this one above, and that would be it. Finito. Basta.

Like a person swearing of the Internet, alcohol or overeating, my resolve lasted all of about five minutes. Not only that, I’ve drawn thousands more since then.

I’m glad my resolve didn’t stick. I think my work has gotten a lot better since then. That wouldn’t have happened had I been made of sterner stuff.

Make of that what you will.
