A quick throwback post from waaay back in March, 2017. I made this cartoon as a demo for BitsOnline and we never ended up using it, so I figured I’d post it here on my gallery site for posterity.
I made this long enough ago that I hadn’t really figured how to use all the tools offered by my drawing program yet (I was still using ProCreate), and there’s all sorts of annoying little mistakes in it as a result. But, the concept was interesting I guess, and the attention to detail really makes the image.
In case you’re wondering, each one of his tattoos correspond to the price and date when a media outlet declared Bitcoin as being dead. I’ll probably update this a year from now and just cover him head-to-toe with new ink.
And yes, that’s Paul Krugman on the TV.
