Investing.com: Bad News Bears

Hullo!

Here's the latest comic for Investing.com. This week's subject was the recent steep drop in the markets. The crew at Investing.com asked me to draw a bear waking up (stretching and yawning) from hibernation. He was to be sitting in a bed in his cave. Near the bed, I was asked to draw an alarm clock and a calendar with the words "VIX 11.00" and "Good Morning" on them (respectively). Outside the cave, they asked me to include two fat, happy bulls sitting serenely in the grass.

Here's the sketch:

And here's the final:


This was a ton of work, but also a ton of fun. And I think it actually turned out pretty well. Which is nice. Sometimes I work super hard on a comic and find the fruits of my labor are rotten. But this week things went a little more smoothly, which is great.

Until next week,

Cheers.

Investing.com: Flocks and Crooks

Howdy.

Here's the latest comic for Investing.com.

This week's topic is the ongoing speculation of an impending downturn in the markets, predicated by the historic rises following Trump's election. I was asked by the team at Investing.com to draw Donald Trump as a shepherd leading a herd/flock of cattle up a steep hill. A sign at the top would read "Dow 21,000". On the ground below the cliff, I was asked to draw a sickly-looking bear.

Here's the sketch:

And here's the final:


This week's comic was oddly fun. I'm not sure why I had such a good time drawing it, but I'm not going to complain. If only it was always that way.

Until next week,

Cheers.
