Oh gosh, two things I love.  Huge shoujo cabbage roses and tiny adorable people.  No wait, make that three— I also love Takahashi Macoto.

Going to APE

Hey guys! I’m leaving tomorrow for San Francisco, and I won’t be back until next Monday. I’ll be doing some commissions while out of town, and I’ll make sure to post what I finish, but I have no intention of spending the majority of my time working on commissions. You guys can reach me via email, Twitter, or Ask, if you need me.

If you’re tabling at APE, lemme know, and I’ll stop by and say hi/buy stuff.

In the old days, NFL owners were rich men who accepted the risk of losing money as the cost of doing business. Thanks to the popularity of the game, the NFL and its owners—with the collusion of politicians—have created what amounts to a risk-free business environment. According to Long’s data, a dozen teams received more public money than they needed to build their facilities. Rather than going into debt, they turned a profit.

The perfect example: Seven of every ten dollars spent to build CenturyLink Field in Seattle came from the taxpayers of Washington State, $390 million total. The owner, Paul Allen, pays the state $1 million per year in “rent” and collects most of the $200 million generated. If you are wondering how to become, like Allen, one of the richest humans on earth, negotiating such a lease would be a good start.

In New Orleans, taxpayers have bankrolled roughly a billion dollars to build then renovate the Superdome, which we are now supposed to call the Mercedes-Benz Superdome. Guess who gets nearly all the revenues generated by Saints games played in this building? If you guessed all those hard-working stiffs who paid a billion dollars, you would be wrong. If you guessed billionaire owner Tom Benson, you would be right. He also receives $6 million per annum from the state as an “inducement payment” to keep him from moving the team.

That’s the same amount Cowboys owner Jerry Jones would pay each year in property taxes to Arlington, Texas, where his fancy new stadium is located. Except that Jones doesn’t pay property taxes because, like many of his fellow plutocrats, he’s cut a sweetheart deal with the local authorities.

Why Being a Football Fan Is Indefensible (via kenyatta)

Public funding of stadiums and arenas makes me so goddamn angry.

(via wilwheaton)

I love the idea of sports. I really really do. In a Sports Night, height of physical human achievements kind of way at least. But the MONEY that gets sunk into sports blows my fucking mind all the fucking time. And it’s not even just the stadiums, though that’s fucking insanity on its own.

I have MAJOR ISSUES WITH THE PAY AND GLORIFICATION OF SPORTS PLAYERS! But they earned it! They worked hard! Yeah. They did. But they probably were also financially and socially privileged by their interest in sports. Many of them likely didn’t feel those budget cuts while they were in school because they were IN SPORTS, which are usually the last things to have their budgets cut. Not just in high school, but also in college.

SPORTS MAKE MUCH MONEY FOR UNDERFUNDED SCHOOL SO UNDERFUNDED SCHOOL GIVE MONEY TO SPORTS DEPARTMENT, WHICH THE SPORTS PEOPLE CAN THEN GIVE TO THEIR PLAYERS IN SCHOLARSHIP FORM SO THEY CREATE MORE SPORTS PLAYERS TO PLAY THE SPORTS AND HOPEFULLY SOMEDAY BRING GLORY UPON ALL WHO WALK THE HALLOWED HALLS OF THE STATE UNIVERSITY. OR PAY FANCY COACHES TO MAKE BETTER SPORTS TEAM. OR HELP PAY FOR FANCY SPORTS FACILITIES ONLY USED FOR SPORTS.

Get real.

You think the theater department at a public college is getting enough money (out of the budget and from their own “sales”) to give out full rides to students who aren’t even studying as theater majors?

So sports are culturally spreading the word of their greatness while financially fucking the cities they occupy and raking in the profits from the sports fans they helped fucking breed in our public school systems.

(via katiedoyle)

This is why I HATE the Saints, boycott anything related to them, and remind fans that they, as an entity, were going to ditch a recently Katrina devastated New Orleans for a city willing to pay for their expensive tastes. I have no loyalty for trash that has no loyalty to their home city, albeit adopted (most players are transplants who moved to the city, got fat, and lost their ability to play the game that they’re paid to play)

Commissions!

The spot color ended up being the most fun, since I never get to do it for con commissions!

I take commissions online too! I prefer to work through quotes, so if you’re interested, email me about your idea, and I can come up with something tailored to your needs and budget.
