Painful Landscapes & Eternal Sunsets

One thing certain cartoonists do not want to do is expose their inner pain. It's, well, it's too painful. That's why we're cartoonists!

Daily Whip Out:

"A Painful Landscape Narration"

See what I mean? This is painful and honest and true. And, so is this:

Daily Whip Out: "A Punk In My Past"

  Is it the memory of my "punk" son growing up? Or, is it my own rebellious growing up, haunting my old man dreams? Here's a clue:

"The feelings that hurt most, the emotions that sting most, are those that are absurd—the longing for impossible things, precisely because they are impossible: nostalgia for what never was; the desire for what could have been; regret over not being someone else; dissatisfaction with the world's existence. All these half-tones of the soul's consciousness create in us a painful landscape, and eternal sunset of what we are."

—Fernando Pessoa

The Eternal Sunset of What We Are
