Institutional Investor

Just finished a couple of illustrations for Institutional Investor, a magazine that runs stories on financial matters to complicated for me to fully understand. It was a fun challenge illustrating a story based solely on abstract themes from a layman's synopsis. The story, "Examining the Contradictions of Risk On / Risk Off," was about the bipolar nature of markets -- when the market looks good, everybody buys up assets in an indiscriminate frenzy. Then, when things start to look bad, those same people desperately try to sell everything off.

By the time we'd decided on a sketch, I only had a day to draw the final illustration (due to some travel plans). I woke up, drew like crazy, packed for my trip, then went to bed.

If you're interested in reading the article, you can. AD: Diana Panfil

This piece, depicting the Risk On phase, covered the opening spread -- very excited to see it in print, with the text. 
This illustration, shows the Risk Off side and runs on the next page.
