Friday, March 24, 2017 Bad News Bears


Here's the latest comic for This week's subject was the recent steep drop in the markets. The crew at asked me to draw a bear waking up (stretching and yawning) from hibernation. He was to be sitting in a bed in his cave. Near the bed, I was asked to draw an alarm clock and a calendar with the words "VIX 11.00" and "Good Morning" on them (respectively). Outside the cave, they asked me to include two fat, happy bulls sitting serenely in the grass.

Here's the sketch:

And here's the final:

This was a ton of work, but also a ton of fun. And I think it actually turned out pretty well. Which is nice. Sometimes I work super hard on a comic and find the fruits of my labor are rotten. But this week things went a little more smoothly, which is great.

Until next week,
