It's all Greek.


Here's this week's comic for

The subject this time is Greece's likely default on IMF bailout repayments and potential subsequent exit from the European Union. The current Greek government decided it would hold a referendum, allowing/forcing Greek citizens to decide whether or not to continue with repayment (and potential increase in austerity measures) or to reject the process and embrace an uncertain future.

I was asked to draw an old Greek man reading a newspaper with the headline "Referendum" on it. Next to him, I was asked to include two kids wearing jerseys from Greek's national football team. In the background: The Parthenon. Beyond that, in the clouds, I was asked to draw Zeus, looking angry and uncertain.

Here's the sketch:

And here's the final:

Fun comic this week. It's not often I get to draw a Greek god. That's about all the reflecting I have the patience for after several days of very long work hours.

Until next week!
