Hello all. Sab here.
I am in financial need. Not for fancy things, but for food, rent, and namely, post-grad student debt. Although i’m a working class artist who holds not two but 3 part-time jobs in addition to occasional exhibitions, $ are not enough.
That is why i’m selling my original art for $30.00, until November 15th.
I understand what it’s like to appreciate art but never be able to afford it. I created SEVERPRESS with my partner to try and make affordable works of art accessible to as many people as the internet can touch.
However now the time has come for me to pay more than $350 a month in student debt repayment fees as I graduated this past may, in addition to regular living costs and rent, and I honestly can’t do it.
If you are into my work, and you’ve got some $ that you’d like to contribute to this cause, please do! I would absolutely positively appreciate it. However if not, that’s okay. Times are hard, obvi. But reblobs are appreciated, too.
HOW THIS WOULD WORK, THEORETICALLY….
Pictured above are the types of work you’d be buying. Full colour illustrations that aren’t half-assed. They would be 6 x 9 inches in size on archival paper. You can commission me to draw specific elements, or order a surprise. All of this will be done through my email address, email@example.com. That way it’s a 1-1 interaction that you’re getting from me, rather than something random and cold. You email me your specs, purchase the drawing through paypal, and I send it to you directly. If you have an extra $5, i’ll throw in a 1-layer 5 x 5 inch silkscreened print with your order.
WHY TIL NOVEMBER 15TH?
I am testing the waters. If this goes well I will extend it. If not, I won’t. I hate campaigns and said i’d never do them, but I can’t think of anything else right now as i’m physically tired from working my day jobs.
So there you go…….
Thanks for your time,
If you can, help me out. I’ll ship anywhere :) reblog if you can, too, it would help greatly.

(Don’t mind the F word, anything I illustrate is based from experience)
"The so-called “government shutdown” isn’t really a government shutdown at all. It’s a public services shutdown. Food aid to needy families will stop. Over one thousand food safety and inspection workers will not go to work. Veterans looking to apply for benefits will face serious delays. The IRS won’t answer the phone to help you prepare your taxes, and will stop processing returns. Depending on where you live, you might have a difficult time getting your passport renewed. Zoos and museums are closed effective immediately.But the government’s guns and surveillance state apparatus chug on without much of a blip at all.
The NSA, fully funded and operational, won’t have any problem continuing to map our social and associational patterns. The FBI will still map ethnic communities and spy on peace and justice activists. The CIA will go on plotting and executing its extrajudicial drone killings in places like Pakistan and Yemen. The DEA will still use NSA intercepts to sneakily forward drug prosecutions while hiding from judges and defendants the intelligence that sparks investigations. Customs, Border Protection will go on harassing Muslims and immigrants at the border, humiliating citizens and visitors alike for no good reason. ICE will continue to deport and detain immigrants, tearing families asunder. The surveillance state will go on, ‘protecting’ a shell of a civilization. We might not be able to eat, but at least someone will be watching us starve."
there is so much beauty and truth in this omg
I love the first one
the museums are really just GIGANTIC REAL LIFE PALE BLOGS
