jobless men keep going by animegher jobless men keep going by animegher
this is a commission for :iconkenihiko: asking me just for gojyo and sanzo together.
after thinking about my current hardships, i suddenly thought it would be really funny if gojyo and sanzo were unemployeed, semi-grapes of wrath. I found this great billboard from the depression that read 'jobless men keep going. we can't take care of our own. -chamber of commerce.' i wish places would post that up, it would really save me a lot of time and phone calls.
and i see sanzo as the sickly friend who can't work as hard... maybe accidently chokes the plantation owner's daughter or something. good ole americana :3 hes supposed to be sleeping while gojyo tries to figure out their next move.
the scan was really dark, its actually on a lightly cream-colored paper that got totally washed out ^^;

well (looks at watch) i spent 8.5 months out of college without any full time job, i managed to pick up some freelance here and there but nothing that could really pay the bills. its heartbreaking and depressing and the only thing you can do is keep trying (despite the fact you want to punch the people that tell you to try).
its really tough times right now and you need to give credit to outside factors, its not just you

Hahaha social commentary is even better when you can relate to it :D You did a really great job with this piece! The clothing style works really well for them. As always, the coloring is great and I like the simplistic background. It's very eye catching!

Awesome as always. Sorry it took me so long to get to this. I love Gojyo, you just capture his personality so well when you draw him, and I'm so astounded you capture Minekura's style so well.

I only miss a sign for Gojyo. "Will f*ck for food" or something like that.

XDDDDD Hahahah now that they're jobless.
How're they gonna feed their vices?

=x= They can always just pose as models.
Lol. They're smexy enough. O_o
Though Sanzo's too mean for any agency I think.
Lol.

i was originally thinking prostitutes, since its the oldest profession in history .... but i've kinda done that before ^^;
and im sure sanzo could be queen bitch of models, but theyre all mean spirited to get that far. agencies are full of wild she-beasts.

Hahahah and Sanzo'll be the Queen Bee of the Hive indeed.
Wonder what Gojyo would be like as a model XD
But I know he'll surely know how to strut his stuff.
Ego-filled as he is lol.

Scenario: 5 and 3 get kicked off the Mission by 8 and 9 who declare they can get the job done faster by themselves. :XD:
guess why ;)

This feels very classic, a very successful blend of MK's Japanese men and Depression-era Americana. Gojyo's Irish-American get-up and Sanzo's Semi-Mafia gear are SO COOL DUDE.
