Here's the latest comic for Investing.com.
This week's topic is a massive global bond sell off and the ramifications thereof, including heavy losses by Bill Gross who was heavily invested in German Bunds. This may or may not have been partially influenced by Fed Chair Janet Yellen stating that she thinks stocks are "overvalued".
The team at Investing.com asked me to draw Gross, sitting up in bed and visibly shaken. Next to Gross, I was asked to draw his nightmare: A thought bubble in which Yellen is popping bubbles labeled DAX, DOW, Real Estate, Bunds, and T-Bonds.
Here's the sketch:

This week's comic was a complete joy to work on. Both of the subjects have great faces for caricature, the backgrounds were different than normal and interesting, and the drawing went fairly smoothly. I know I say it very, very rarely, but here goes: I actually like this comic. I'm satisfied with the drawing, the color, the shading and the layout. Here's hoping next week's comic goes as well.
