by Sean D'Souza

Remember how we all wanted to be astronauts and teachers when we grew up? Well that hasn’t changed a lot, but there have been some changes for sure. Have a look below, and be sure to leave your comments. :)

You can have it all. Be all three. :)

Possible, I guess :)

What If I Don’t Want To Grow Up?

Every kid wants to grow up. It’s just adults that wish they were kids again. No five year old wants to stay five for more than 3-4 months (at best) :)

Hi Sean,

Loved the cartoons! – Fascinating theme to explore…as a cartoon series!

Interesting thought to project these ‘thought of’ occupations forward ten years – to see if they might still be available :)

I guess the only real ‘certainty’ amongst these is probably the Teacher?

In the western world, with NASA virtually halting its space programme, I guess being an astronaut is now more remote?

Internet ‘Gurus’ seem to be fairly ‘thick on the ground’ at present – but who knows how long it will be before this particular ‘bubble’ bursts?

The only thing we can be sure of is that things WILL change…

Snake oil salesmen have existed for thousands of years in one form or another. Astronauts may go on the dole, but not Internet gurus :) There’s always a creep, and always a sucker. Sad, but true. And I know this, because I’ve been sucked in by their get-successful schemes myself. It took a while, but I eventually learned there is no quick and easy way. Even the creeps have to work very hard to get your money. ;)

I like the watercolour cartoons, Sean.
And I *love* the lack of freakin’-irritating, yellow highlighting and arrows around your biz ;)


Sean DSouza August 13, 2011 at 2:16 am

Thanks. I’ll do more watercolours in future :) And yes, the yellow highlighting was avoided on purpose. We detest it too. We figured there must be ‘crazy’ people like us as well on the planet. :)

LOVING the cartoons, Sean, especially the surfboard symbolism. Is that Mark Zuckerberg enjoying the fruits of his Facebook Labor?

PS: Ditto in gratitude for no highlighting and funny arrows.


Sean DSouza August 13, 2011 at 3:38 am

I doubt that’s Mark :) Mark probably works as hard (if not harder than everyone else). But yes, it’s a “guru” persona that tries to appear as if all they’re doing is surfing all day. That reminds me to take on the four-day workweek :)

Funny stuff, my favorite one so far!


Sean DSouza August 13, 2011 at 4:40 am

There will be more, of course :)

Could be the first time I saw a vertical cartoon. Internet guru – not something you see in the dailies. Nice positioning of two outboard backgrounds juxtiposed with an inboard white non-background. Excellent colors and nice color “tye-dye in”. Good work !!


Sean DSouza August 14, 2011 at 1:57 pm

Thanks. ;)

Nice! Kids today are sooooo lucky ~ an internet guru
