If there is an interesting news story I do like to get on it as soon as possible and come up with an interpretation/response to it. Of course I really try and understand it first, specially this one as I don't know much about stocks. I saw a great opportunity with the stock chart sudden rise to represent the motion of the stone slung up to Goliath by David and the illustration pretty much drew itself form there! I'm happy with the drawing of Goliath especially as I actually tried to draw his form first and then drew the drapery on top. The 'stonk' was also a great coincidence that it worked well as a sound effect. I was really proud of this idea, although it didn't do as well as I thought it would on instagram.. but who knows what does well and why on that platform! More then number of people I look at certain people who's likes I really value as well as comments I really value. Here's the wikepedia article on this..
And ofcourse this was the original sketch in my little book...
