A Coney Economy
posted: December 11, 2008
I was thinking Coney Island when I proposed a theme for a series of illustrations running in the Wall Street Journal. The Bull and Bear are at it again as news of the economy gets grimmer by the day.
A few ideas were struck because they were deemed scary, but I'll recycle them elsewhere.
And finally, at the end of the section is an optimistic image of the bull ascending with anticipation.

Great job finessing the gridwork and details on the roller coaster—that kind of repetitive element can murder the spontaneity of a drawing, but you knock it out with absolutely zero stiffness.

These characters are great. I like the ones that depict the bear and bull enjoying the park; the bull in the bulls eye, bear in the mirrors, bull going up the roller coaster. These have a fun, day int he life, little rascals feel. Very enjoyable. Thanks, with a smile.

Another great idea from THE CONCEPT CHAMPION!

Brilliant! All of 'em. (I like the fun house mirrors a lot too)
