Investing.com: Mahsels.

Hiya,

Well, after a week-long hiatus from Investing.com, we were back in business this week. The comic this time around was about the current litigation against Google in the EU.

The good folks at Investing.com asked me to draw a courtroom. Specifically, they asked me to base the courtroom on the European Union Human Rights Court. In that space I was asked to draw a judge behind a bench, some EU flags, and Google's top men (Sergey Brin and Larry Page). Brin and Page were to be super swoll (that's how the kids these days refer to people who are physically fit). The swoll-edness was a metaphor for the size of the company and the reason for the subsequent lawsuit.

Here's the sketch:


Sergey and Page are here to Pahmp You Aahp. If you weren't alive in the 90s, that reference won't mean much to you.

Here's the outline:

And here's the final:


Thoughts:

Pretty fun comic this week, even though I felt a little rusty. I think the caricatures came out pretty well. Pretty well for a one-day deadline, anyway. The super-symmetrical composition wasn't ideal, but I thought it provided the best angle/perspective on the characters.

Also, Larry Page looks like either a Vulcan or a Romulan from Star Trek. Something about that haircut and the eyebrows. The resemblance is uncanny.

At any rate, that's all she wrote for this one. Until next week.

Cheers.
