The Stress and Sacrifice of Making Things That Matter to You

Watching the Indie Game: The Movie documentary on Netflix (also available at and I can't help but notice the parallels between indie game development and indie cartooning. The personal, financial, and health sacrifices that come with being gripped by a vocation. But you still do it, because you're gripped by it. As someone else once said, it's kind of a sickness.

I think anyone involved in a creative pursuit would enjoy this.

I'd love it if someone did a film like this about cartoonists, though.

    I was hoping that documentary "Stripped: The Comics Documentary" would sort of fulfill your wish, Jerzy. But I haven't seen it yet.
