Arrived in excellent condition. Seller was very kind, and promptly shipped another when the first order was sent to a different location.

The item came in great condition, just as the picture said and in one piece, might I add, but there was a technological glitch because Etsy told me that the mug was delivered to me a day before it actually was, which is probably not the shopkeeper's fault. It scared me a bit, but I was relieved to receive the mug a little late rather than never!

I started drawing the Saint/God and got stuck with the chart. Here are the versions I tested for the pie chart and the wording.

About

How I became cartoonist

Children want to be like their heroes when they grow up.

They want to be firefighters, doctors, supermen and etc.


All I wanted is to be a cartoonist.
When I was a child I loved the comics section in the newspaper. It was published on Saturday. I ran to the news stand every Saturday morning to buy the paper. I never missed cartoon movie on TV.
I even drew The Flintstones on my bedroom window with acrylics. I "made animation" with cutouts.
My math teacher in 5th grade was published cartoonist. He caught me doodling in his class. Math was't my favorite subject as you can guess.
He punished me, of course.

But also started helping me improving my cartoons and jokes. He encouraged me to go to the newspaper and submit my cartoons.
I went there and met with the most famous cartoonist! You can imagine my excitement. But he turned out to be one sour old man. He told me that I am not "cartoonist material" and will never be. I was crushed. Later I learned that this man did this to everyone. All his life!
My parents were always supportive of me. They encouraged me to go on and not give up my dream. I will be forever grateful to them.
The old cartoonist retired a few years later. And my math teacher sent me to submit my cartoons again.
Here I want to express my gratitude to the cartoonists and editors in the paper. They taught one 15 years old how to become a better cartoonist. Some of them became very close friends and always supported me. I learned a lot from them.

I remember the first time I saw my cartoon in the paper! I made my parents so proud!
I went on to freelance for newspapers. This helped me pay for my university tuition.

It's my pleasure to share my cartoons with you.
I call them "martoons".

I'll let you judge where I succeeded and where I might have failed.

If I did my work well you'll leave my shop smiling!

Enjoy!


Sincerely,

Martin
