World’s Easiest Job


It would be wonderful if, as part of the ritual of growing up, that you had to do a stint as a bike messenger on a desert island, in the backend of nowhere. This might allow the parents a respite from that self destructive and anarchic period known as ‘adolescence.’  (And yes, I have two children within that realm)

I am no psychologist (though I can dress like one), but I feel that the mind would be wonderfully in trim, without all that excess and flabby thinking. Our introspectiveness would allow us to burgeon in ways one cannot imagine. We would be like that cool guy who seems to anticipate every possible situation, and always says the perfect thing. That is, instead of a typical fool whose brain is cluttered with so much banal TV/film trivia, and meaningless catch phrases that he must issue short piercing screams from time to time.

What do I know? I draw cartoons (I prefer Dan Clowes’ term ‘Ink Stud).


I am a Sansei, with two teens, and a hamster. This blog is a repository for ideas and observations, expressed in cartoon form, by and large. A bit of a journal too. Feel free to follow me on INSTAGRAM @ WILTOONS, (the Twitter for people who like to go out) where I post a journal comic. Thanks for dropping by! The pic is of me and my boy Peter Noone of Herman's Hermits. (not really a fan but he wanted his pic with me) © Wilton Sugiyama and Wiltoons, 2009 to 2020.

  1. To heck with sending youth to a desert island! Send ME to a desert island. I would love the peace, quiet, and serenity. And best of all, being alone on a desert island means no one would be telling me that I’m desert-islanding all wrong.

  2. Yes Biff, why should WE remain behind? Give us the much needed peace and serenity. Let’s call it ‘tough love’.
