A Double Dose of Forex!
For the past several weeks I have been producing a weekly illustration for ForexPros, a financial website on which any query you might have about markets, money, and all things financial can be answered. These are the illustrations from the past two weeks. In the first, Mario Draghi and Ben Bernanke stand opposite each other in a competition to see which can print more currency. The second has to do with Spanish Bond Rates and the ever-fluctuating situation surrounding the European currency union. Fortunately, the good people at Forex supply me with the subject matter and ask only that I illustrate their ideas. I'm afraid that my analysis would fall a bit short if I was actually asked to distill many of these subjects. My knowledge of Spanish Bond Yields is, admittedly, about as weak as a Facebook IPO (heyo!). But seriously, folks. These are fun illustrations. I never seem to get tired of drawing faces, particularly the subtleties of skin tone, lines and wrinkles, and hair. Very enjoyable all around. Cheers.
