Read Between The Lines

read between the lines cartoon

As much as I’d like to think of myself as a young up and coming cartoonist, I’m coming to realize that I’m probably more established than upstart these days.

I turned 40 last year, got my first pair of bifocals and that kid at the grocery store calls me “Sir.”

Sigh… I’m getting old.

So I guess it only figures that I’d begin to write cartoons about aging.  Thankfully cartooning is one of those careers you can do for a good long time, but I’m not sure I’m ready to be called “Sir” just yet.

  1. Thanks for sharing this, Mark. I think this is one of the best things I’ve ever stumbled upon today. Keep up the good work!

  2. Haha, see, I was thinking this cartoon had more to do with an incompetent boss than an aging one. I guess the font needs to be made bigger for me too, so to speak.
