Any career - or job, for that matter, is prone to highs and lows, peaks and troughs - and 'Ups and Downs'. It's possibly your willingness to endure these in your field, that will underpin your longevity. This character represents the willing struggle to maintain control when you repeatedly submit yourself to turbulence of this kind - be it in, or out of your control; The will to continue has to be yours - although at times, it may not feel that way. It's ceaseless - and your persistence sees you embrace potential/certain humiliation. Possibly, you thrive on it. Is this you? Is this you sometimes? Does it remind you of someone you know?
Taken from the "Work" scene in the "A-Z" (Director - Elroy Simmons, 2012 Pasticherie/Spider-Eye) the five animation cycles all gently satirise the joys and horrors of any 'gainful' employ, however lacking in gains that work may be.
