 “Student loans are destroying the imagination of youth. If there’s a way of a society committing mass suicide, what better way than to take all the youngest, most energetic, creative, joyous people in your society and saddle them with, like $50,000 of debt so they have to be slaves? There goes your music. There goes your culture. There goes everything new that would pop out. And in a way, this is what’s happened to our society. We’re a society that has lost any ability to incorporate the interesting, creative and eccentric people.” ~David Graeber

i live in a college town. and at the restaurant i serve in i’ve seen countless students graduate, quit their waiting job here, move back home, get another waiting job, and start paying off their student loans. ya know, i feel some judgement when i tell people that i’m not in school right now, but i’ll take that any day over the hopeless prison the american education system has become. 
John D. Rockefeller said it from the get go when he founded the board of education. “I do not want a nation of thinkers; I want a nation of workers.” and lo and behold. 

Sometimes I feel like I’m wasting my time by going to school. If I were in SD, I could work and survive with a couple friends (i’d have to move to LA with them). No commitment, no pressure to succeed in the corporate world., more opportunity to be happy.

So this past month, I went through a little art slump. Not necessarily an art block, because I have a ton of ideas to work on. My stuff , to me personally, hasn’t been progressing the way I want it to. Yeah, there is always stuff to work on, but none of my stuff wasn’t coming out right. Just the notion of trying to be “perfect” in my sketch pad, of all things, was bugging me. Plus, a lot of things have happened these past 2 months (moving suddenly and working full time now). Maybe a little burned out? We are enjoying the job immensely and it’s been amazingly rewarding already, though! Guess every artist goes through those slumps. But I am just going to allow my self to just be loose, free, and just draw whatever I want in my sketchbook - the sloppiness, exploratory sketchiness and all. Perfection shouldn’t always be the goal, and sometimes, I have to remind myself every once in a while!

Sorry for the rambling. :) ~~~ - ELI

Another little piece based on my other picture "Skippy in the Rain". 
Character originated from a plush lamb that we had when we were little. :D
