college kids are dumb by chibighibli college kids are dumb by chibighibli
Mmm, I'm quite enjoying doing illustrations for the campus paper. This one is for an article about how college kids are completely incompetent when it comes to existing in the real world: ie, they can't do their taxes, balance a checkbook, or comprehend what they're reading in a newspaper. I'm very happy with how the line art for this turned out. :)

PS: The one on the left is supposed to be me. I don't know the first thing about doing taxes, hurh hurh.

I can read a newspaper and balance my checkbook. That's 2 out of 3 anyway.

Haha, this scares me, im a Junior in highschool. My parents don't even do their taxes, my grandma does it for them xD I want to learn to do them myself though. I somewhat kind of know how to balance a checkbook though, i learned how in a business tech class I took my freshman year.

I'm about to do my taxes for the first time, it looks simple enough.

But I know it's deceiving me, just waiting to make me look like an idiot. :)

I'm a college kid, and I can do my own taxes and balance my own checkbook without help from anyone (human OR machine). Just saying.
I DO love the artwork though x)

Good thing I grew up basically doing all my cleaning, laundry, cooking, lawn mowing, road cleaning, plumbing, etc! XDD
The economy and politics stuff is pretty new, but when to comes to living by yourself, childhood. ^^d

It's like watching my housemates struggle with the concept of doing dishes because no one else's f going to clean them for them.

To be fair, taxes are hard. Like, really hard. Like, we never covered that in any kind of class and even the 'adults' in my life don't always get it hard. Any-who, I like this. I like this a lot. I get looks for reading a newspaper on campus... but, oh well.
