Post Brexit Blues


Welp, it happened. Brits voted to leave the EU. This week's comic for is about some of the economic fallout of that decision.

I was asked by the crew at to draw EU President Mario Draghi, Janet Yellen, and Shinzo Abe on horseback wearing medieval armor. Each was to be carrying a weapon (sword, bow and arrow, and mace, respectively). I was also asked to draw a large, intimidating knight standing in front of them. The knight was to be holding a British flag with the word "Brexit" on it.

Here's the layout sketch:

And here's the final:


Another tough comic this week. Four characters, plus three horses. The background was relatively simple, at least. I thought it would be appropriate to draw another gray, stormy sky. At the last minute, I decided to add in a few snow flakes to reinforce the idea that for Britain (if you listen to economists), financial Winter is coming.

Overall, I think this is a decent comic (in terms of the drawing, anyway). Although, because of the large amount of work in a small window of time, I don't really feel like I made decisions on this one. It was mostly a mad dash to the finish line once again, mostly fueled by instinct and coffee. But I made it.

Until next week.
