Ok, I’m done :|
Ok, I’m done :|
Just ignore the scribbles on the side; I’s just talking to myself >.>
Still gotta mess around with the curtains and spotlight, make the wires on the mike look 3D, fix up the sparkleys, clean up the ugly mess leaking out the sides, then look for little things to obsess over.
Then-then post it on TE at some ungodly hour where no one will see it >.> Then-then-then, not draw anything for about six months because my head has run out of pictures :|
Eeh… I’ll be messing around with the shiny stuff more after everything else is done…
Seems I somehow forgot to post this WIP shot (from October 23rd):
And, here’s the most recent one (from today):
I still got a lot of work to do on it…
Still got quite a ways to go >.<
ASDFGHJKL ALWAYS OFF CENTRE. TegakiE, you really need a selection tool.
I’m’a go sleep now.
I made a quick scribble in my brother’s sketchbook as a joke, and now he wants me to make it a full picture. So… I started this in TegakiE.
… Is she even recognisable in this form?
College debt shows up a lot in these stories, actually. It’s more insistently present than housing debt, or even unemployment. That might speak to the fact that the protests tilt towards the young. But it also speaks, I think, to the fact that college debt represents a special sort of betrayal. We told you that the way to get ahead in America was to get educated. You did it. And now you find yourself in the same place, but buried under debt. You were lied to.~

The school I attended is being sued by the government for fraud. This isn’t some small-time hack school. It’s the Art Institute, a chain of for-profit colleges with real accreditation and campuses all across the country. They knowingly loaned huge amounts of money to low-income students who they knew could never afford to pay it back. They kept students who they knew didn’t have the skills to get proper job placement in their chosen field. And they happily gobbled up the federal loan money and left these students to the wolves, such as Sallie Mae, who is faced with a class-action lawsuit. They make a profit when students default on their loans.
They didn’t just lie to us. They concocted a scheme to get rich off of our misery. They profit by destroying our lives.
Reblogging because I have a friend who went to the Art Institute and this is happening to her right now.
I fucking wanted to go to one of those places once too. Fuck that.
Ho-lee-crap…I had the choice to go to the Art Institute but decided not to when they harassed me for months. No joke, they called all hours of the day, called my high school, anywhere they could get the phone number to. They were worse than military recruiters, and they honestly scared me.
Now I’m extra glad I didn’t go.
They’re hanging on a clothes line that’s set up in the middle of the kitchen. “Why is there a clothesline running through the kitchen?” I hear you ask. Well, the answer is, quite simply, because my mom decided it needed to be there.
Ok, but seriously, when it was installed, there was a mouse problem all over the neighbourhood, and we were tired of throwing loaves of bread out because they had been “moused”. Can’t have a cat due to allergies, and these mice were too smart to get caught in traps. So we took to hanging the bread on the line.
