Inspired by every student whose told they can’t be an artist because it doesn’t “make enough money”.
It’s a nice idea and all but no, no it is not this easy and this simple to just up and do what you enjoy doing and survive off it. Even the “making way more money doing what you hate” doesn’t actually make it all that easy to keep a roof over your head.
Unless you live with your parents that “warm home” is gonna be at least $700 a month counting minimal utility usage and food probably another 200 if you’re living off really unhealthy junk.
And if it was so easy to just go start a store or a business there wouldn’t be so many people struggling regardless of their SUPERB fucking talent and skill, namely most of the people I know on the internet.
This is a really sweet comic but a really well meaning person but it’s so unrealistic that it serves more as a painful reminder of reality’s harshness.
This whole ‘do what you want as if money was no object’ is such a privileged point of view. Sorry, but money IS an object.
And that’s also not counting people who literally cannot disobey their parents because they’re unemployed or trying to find work and their parents are the ones supplying their food and the roof over their head. And it’s also not counting college students and graduates who are drowning in relentless debt and facing complete destitution just to pay for their education since you need a fucking degree to get any sort of well-paying job nowadays.
Money may not buy YOUR definition of happiness but god damn, ninety-thousand dollars that I’ll probably never earn in my entire life falling into my lap would solve practically all of my problems and lift a whole ton of stress off my shoulders. Money fucking matters in this society. It really, REALLY fucking matters.
I don’t like the way this makes it seem like women become hysterical and make bad decisions whenever they get their periods, all that really happens is some cramping, possible IBS-esque symptoms, and flucuations in energy and hunger. I know it’s a joke but so are “Oh! are you saying this cuz you’re on your period?” jokes.
THATS RIGHT FOLKS
After nearly a year and a half, my main blog has hit 400 followers (if only for that instant before two people unfollowed me while I was making this post)!
I haven’t posted a lot of art recently, so the header is the best example of my art that you could win!
I’ll do three drawing from a random number selector.
Two full color characters or Four flat characters or 8 sketches/chibis
You can mix and match all you want for your choices!
One full color character or Two flat characters or 4 sketches/chibis
You can also choose one flat character and two sketches!
One flat character or 2 sketches/chibis
No mixing and matching for this one, sorry!
I bet you’re thinking, “Well that’s dandy and all, but what will you draw for me?”
Here’s a list
Any character from:
- Ace attorney
- Animal crossing
- Don’t hug me I’m scared
- Portal 2
- James Patterson (maximum ride, witch and wizard, daniel x, etc.)
- Flightrising (provide your own dragon)
- Yogscast- and any games they play
- Creaturehub- and any games they play
- OCs if you have a reference for me!!
- Frozen and any other disney movie I am familiar with.
- AH if you can direct me to the video you want a drawing of.
- AU’s and cross-overs of any of these!!
If you send an ask about a fandom and I know about it, I’ll add it to the list!!
But remember, if a youtuber has a series that I haven’t watched, I need to watch it before I can draw anything. Bonus for me too if it’s a reference I understand!
1. Must be following this blog
You can follow for the give-away, but it limits you to 2nd and 3rd place prizes.
2. One like, one reblog.
Each counts the same, and I don’t want people hating me for your spam…
3. No give-away blogs.
I doubt anyone actually reads this far but all these rules are just common sense.
4. Please don’t complain if you don’t win or get a lower prize than you wanted.
Hurts me, hurts others, and hurts your own image bro. Sorry!
I’ll give this some time, say until after exams so I’m not drawing through homework.
The deadline is currently May 30, but it may change to sooner. Good luck!
