Welcome to Metaphysical Monday.
I came up with the idea for this cartoon awhile back which started the idea of making some cartoons about spirituality/metaphysical self help concepts and teaching.
Although I am poking fun at concepts I am actually a firm believer in them such as “living in the now.” I even believe “living in the now” is a cornerstone to a more fulfilled, enjoyable life. I subscribe to a lot theories like which mostly echo through Eckhart Tolle’s two books the “The Power of Now” and “A New Earth.“ In those books he talks about the benefits and importance of being fully present in the moment you are experiencing along with a whole host of other ideas that I will not get into here.
Needless to say I thought it would be fun to look at the comical side of these positive concepts and document them in Animatic Press. Sometimes the best satire comes from a place of admiration. When it comes from hate or disgust; it still can come off as funny but there is a darkness and anger behind it that the reader can sense and it often comes across as bitter unless you are exposing the satire or ridiculous of it. This can be very difficult to do. I always thought Doonesbury was and still is a master at this
Hope you like this one and it makes you laugh. Have a good week.
