Currency Race

Here's last week's comic for Investing.com.  The subject (as always, thought up by the Investing.com crew) deals with currency values and, more specifically, which currency fell the most last year.

I don't mind this comic so much.  Because of the angle and the relatively large amount of white space, it's a pretty unique comic.  Also, because there was no requirement for the faces of the characters to look like anyone specific, I had fun trying to make each character look like they are from their specific country.  This could be a slippery ski slope to racial profiling, but I used reference photos and tried to keep away from stereotypes (for instance, I used the author Julian Barnes as the reference for the British racer.  He looks VERY British.).

 So there you have it.
