Mmmh, good question. Good humor and wild ideas save me all the time from the dark pits of sorrow.
Art as a lifesaver, i suppose. And when they ask me to create a cartoon with a given subject (UFOS, GOD, PLASTICSEX) also, I try to do my best as an illustrator. That double oportunity makes me happy and i forget to sink in darkness (jajajaja)
