I've been reading an enormous comics biography of Osamu Tezuka.  And the more I read, the more I am glad I am not Mr. Tezuka.

Don't get me wrong, he's a master of his craft!  I love his work!  But reading about his work schedule, I am completely unsurprised he dropped dead at sixty.  We like to remember the sheer output he created during his lifetime, but the fact was, that level of output came at a hefty price.  I've read about him working for two and a half days solid, locked in a room, with no sleep.  His editors were usually in there with him.

I mean, yes, sure, he could pound out thirty-two pages in a day with one assistant, and made a ton of money doing it, but there's a reason one of his colleagues, Eiichi Fukui died at 33 from raw overwork.

This biography, I feel like, is a good cure for any jealousy I might've had.
