Smarter than the average bear market

Hey Boo Boo,

This week's comic for Investing.com is about the recent fall in the price of Apple stock. The crew at Investing.com asked me to draw the following:

A forest. In the forest, a sign reading "Bear Park". Also in said forest, Apple CEO Tim Cook, dressed as a hunter and carrying a rifle. Walking behind Cook, I was asked to draw three different model iphones (also dressed as hunters carrying rifles). A bear was to be grabbing the iphone bringing up the rear. In the surrounding woods, I was asked to include other bears hiding and looking at the hunting party.

Here's the layout sketch:



And here's the final:


Reflections:

This was a fun comic to draw, but MAN, was it a lot of work. Like last week, this one took me 12+ hours to finish. There are a lot of characters and a lot of detail. Tough but fun. I always enjoy drawing bears. And drawing Tim Cook in safari attire was fun, too. Overall, I think it turned out pretty well.

I also think this comic serves as an important public service announcement, as bears can be very dangerous. And some will steal your picinic baskets.

Until next week.

Cheers.
