Bill Watterson Remaineth…

Da Man. Among other things, he demonstrates there are ways to make a living that do not have to entail slavery.

    Here’s the original. The quotation is from Watterson in 1990, but the artwork is by a fan who does full time web cartooning:

  • Thomas Sundaram

    Minor nitpick: The strip is actually an homage to Watterson; the words are his and the artwork is an imitation of his, but it’s from a site called Zen Pencils.

    But speaking as a philosophy and theology major, heck yeah, Bill Watterson.

    I agree that Bill Watterson is Da Man.

    I do have to disagree about calling working for a company slavery of any type. It isn’t slavery if you can walk up to your boss and hand in a letter of resignation. I’ve done it. I’m likely going to do it again in future. When you’re on your own, it’s called “firing your client”. The company you work for is your client. So long as you never forget that, you’ve got your head on straight.

    Thanks for posting that. Last year I took a “demotion” in my organization. I am so much happier, so much more fulfilled than I was in the six years before when I was in the higher position. I didn’t go down the ladder. I got off of the ladder!

    Seems like a good place to link to this.

    It is nice, but I live in the real world with a wife who cannot work and I must work a certain amt. of hours to qualify for insurance. Making some sacrifices and deferring my own dreams or wants is part of being a grown-up. It helps to have a sense of humor.
    For a humorous treatment of the dicotomy of the “driven” vs. the “drop-out” watch the old Brit-com “The Good Life” (“Good Neighbors” in the States). Plus you get an excellent sampling of great acting.

      “The Good Neighbors” was brilliant! A Distributist Brit-Com. Great fun!
