Roz Chast on cartooning

“It’s a tough business. You only feel as good as your last sale. Even this many years later, I still get depressed if I haven’t made a sale for a couple of weeks. I always feel like that’s the end of it, you know – I really have run out of ideas! You would think by now I would understand that when I get depressed, it’s part of the cycle. But it’s still hard. The fact is, there are no guarantees. I don’t know too many cartoonists who are super confident people.”
