Summer Job Breather


Big oof, so.... I'm going to tell a story

So, some of my friends know that I work for the food industry, beverages specifically. I was hired just right before summer started here, so what happens if you work in that industry when it is summer and you have demanding customers and bosses? Working 9 to 6, 6 days a week, Overtimes are super frequent and there was a time that it became so bad that we have to work Sundays and Holidays. I kinda wanna reflect in my art what I did for my summer rather than make something what I should have been doing when its summer. I'm in a better place and schedule now, still hard and eyeing that resignation but yea. . . Im gonna go get a Lemonade and a hearty Shawarma.

Moral Lesson:

Jeez dude at least be kind to the employees, we have feelings and limits too >:/

Thank you @Teravex for letting me use your music!

I love this! It's great to see a submission that didn't use the typical imagery of summer, but was still able to convincingly portray the season thanks to the warm color palette. The choice in song was great, too - it paired so well with the art and the story in the bio! All in all, I think you did a really good job of translating your real-life experience with these characters. (Oh, and I love the easter eggs in the billboards!)

Just one question: what are the green and red lights down in the lower left corner there?

MicroBihon responds:

those were clothes LOL, i should have used less saturated colors XD

We all believe we can survive global warming, but until we feel that heat, we'll never know.

Sounds rough but hope it goes well for you
Great art btw

You are phenomenal !!!

Very pretty and almost nostalgic!
