It’s taken me a while, but I’ve finally submitted my first eleven exercises for my cartooning diploma. I attended a week’s summer school at a London University a couple of year’s ago, which completely knocked my confidence, but I’ve decided to keep going. The tutor was harsh. There was a time when I would have given up completely but I’m determined to give it a go, even if it is just for fun.
My self-esteem has improved over the last few years, but insecurities never completely go away. I’ve never been very good at saying ‘no’, but I did when I was asked to do another talk for the Samaritans last week. Life is uncertain at the moment and I didn’t want to talk about depression and OCD. I felt a little guilty, but I think I should concentrate on what I have done already.
I hope you enjoy my latest cartoon.
