Ikeda Manabu

Ikeda Manabu is the perfect example of why the arts need to be funded. How could the Japanese artist have had time to develop his style of impossibly detailed drawings while simultaneously holding down a full-time job?

Maybe he did, but the Japanese government does give artists a lot of money compared to the US because the Japanese realize a robust artistic culture is essential to a well-rounded society. Americans, on the other hand, often view artists as lazy and spoiled people who don’t know what hard work is. I wonder what they would consider easy about Manabu’s work.
