(Fish Being Chased Down by Prehistoric Beast drawn by the Wondrous and Glorious, El Cid, 2015)
I have experienced times in my life where I am scrambling to make ends meet, working hard to get my basic needs met, trying desperately trying to connect point A to point B. There have been other times in my life where everything is comfortable. I have the basic needs met (food, shelter, water, and clothing); I maintain a social life with friends and family; once that security net is created, I have the ability to spend entire days and weeks devoted to my comic creating.
But Life is a funny thing. Over this Lifetime, I have collected photographs and memories of my life, the people I have met, and the places I have been, and I realized one major theme:
Sometimes, it is when we are at our Hungriest that we are able to follow our most Important dreams.
The year I signed up to start hosting my webcomic on Drunk Duck’s Website, I was in my third year of college. I probably had about fifteen dollars for my food budget to spread out for one week, that was a time of my life that I was seriously living paycheck to paycheck. But I was not even thinking too much about food or partying at that time because coming back to my apartment every night and getting to draw or work on my comic was the best thing I was ever able to focus all of my attention toward, on a daily basis.
Going back to this idea of Hunger fueling Creativity, it is important to note that from what I have experienced in my own life, is that I have experienced the greatest richness out of life at certain times when I did not even have my basic needs completely met. Looking back, the times I was hungriest were also the Best times of my Life.
I hope everyone votes for the 2020 Drunk Duck Awards!!! 🤍🤍🤍
