I’m almost positive I drew this in a coffee shop somewhere. I’m also pretty sure I’ve had elderly people diss me or my chosen profession like this as well. There were a lot of years Yirmumah was drawn in cafes and coffee shops, on lunch breaks from my “real job” and smug assholes would love to throw their two cents in about your dreams. It ALWAYS bugs me to hear adults squashing younger kid’s dreams or telling them “That’s just a pipe dream, kid.”
One time, when I was a very young man and pretty jaded, I remember giving the finger to a couple of old ladies who were saying I needed to get real job. I’m not proud of that moment, but I’m just sayin. I of course would never do anything like that now… unless they REALLY deserved it!
