Minimum wage should be linked to the poverty level. 

This is basic economic fact.

A business that claims it can’t afford to pay a living wage to its workers is admitting that by definition it fails to meet its basic operating expenses. That major multinational corporations can be “successful” while failing to meet a basic operating expense is only possible because We The People pick up their greedy/lazy slack through taxes and charity. 

And yet somehow it’s everybody else who’s a moocher and a looter…

And this corrosive greed is a big part of what’s slowly poisoning the U.S. economy. Money being hoarded at the top and put in “safe” investments and bank accounts is money that does nothing for no one. It’s just an elaborate means of keeping score. Money put into the hands of the workers does what money is meant to do: it circulates. It gets spent. The same dollar will go through dozens of sets of hands, touching dozens of lives, feeding dozens of people and sparking profits for dozens of businesses. The same dollar, in the hands of the rich, will generally do… nothing. It won’t create jobs. It won’t fund innovations. It won’t start businesses.

Less than 1% of corporate revenues become wages for workers. Less than 3% of the wealthy are actually entrepreneurs (people who risk their money on business ventures that create jobs). 

But 100% of the working class spends their money. That money creates jobs. That money fuels innovations. That money becomes profits. That money keeps the economy ticking.

We have been lied to about who are the parasites and who are the drivers of the economy. We have largely accepted a view of money as a means of keeping score and the economy as something that must have winners and losers, rather than money being a proxy for barter and an economy being a way to divide the labor of society and distribute the load of living

I’ve been meaning to do this for awhile since I’ve gotten so many people asking me what I use to make Avialae. I say *toolbox* but really these are just the pens I use to ink this specific comic with…I have…so many pens…

There are captions with the images explaining the tools.

01. Kuretake Disposable Pocket Brush Pen - Extra Fine
I use this pen the most. It makes a nice clean line that doesn’t budge with water.

02. Kuretake Disposable Pocket Brush Pen - Medium
Same as #01, but a much bigger tip—good for filling in blacks.

03. Uni Pin Pen 02
I use this pen the second most. I like a finer line and more control when inking faces and smaller details, so this does the trick for that.

04. Uni Pin Pen 01
For the tiny tiny details.

05. Kuretake No. 40 Fountain Sable Hair Brush Pen
I don’t use this pen much for this comic but it’s my favorite to ink with. I use it more for larger illustrations.

06. Pilot Color Eno .07mm - Soft Blue
My dedicated bluelines pencil! I like the Eno lead because it doesn’t break easily when I draw with my meaty claws.

07. Uni-ball Signo White Gel Pen
For fuckups and cutting back into lines. (This is not waterproof, so I usually use this last.)

08. Kuretake Fudebiyori Pocket Color Brush Pen - Light Gray
I use this for freckles. That’s it. That’s the only purpose.

09. Kuretake Fudejokochi Brush Pen - Gray Ink
Darker freckles.

10. Akashiya Sai Watercolor Brush Pen - Mouse Gray
T
his pen is kinda cool b/c you can dip it in water and it acts as a pigmented watercolor pen. Of course I blindly disregard that and use it as a base for darker gray fills.

11. Pentel Brush Pen w/ Gray Ink Cartridge
Similar to the Akashiya, but it doesn’t react with water as much.

12. Pentel Aquash Watercolor Brush Pen - Light Black
Dark gray fills/darker shadows.

13. Sumo Grip .5mm Mechanical Pencil
I don’t use this so much with Avialae, but I do all my sketching with this chunky ass mechanical pencil. It’s easier to hold??? Idk. It’s blue.

14. Uni Boxy Eraser
Yooo this eraser is awesome. It erases even my blue lines and it doesn’t leave an obscene amount of eraser shit.

15. J. Herbin Fountain Pen Ink - Gris Nuage
Gray ink! I use this in combination with my waterbrush pens to do most of the values in Avialae. It layers nicely and using gray ink helps me from making values too dark.

16. Kuretake Waterbrush - Medium
You fill these with water and squeeze them to keep the brush wet. I keep this one clean to do light values.

17. Kuretake Waterbrush - Large
I fill this one with diluted gray ink to do darker values.

18. Kuretake Waterbrush - Flat Head
Big ‘ol waterbrush to do big washes with.

I also do a lot of editing in Photoshop b/c I do most of Avialae while on a large amount of sleep medication*~*~*~
