Blackjack / Money Management for Stock & Commodities magazine



Illustration for the August issue of Technical Analysis of Stocks & Commodities. Included my roughs and my drawings. For this piece I drew it in 3 different pieces, streamlined them separately and combined them on different layers in Adobe Illustrator. I do this for the more complicated pieces, so I can control the layout better. Thanks Christine!

Love it! A good limited palette, too. You always bring it, man.

Thanks. Yeah, I sometimes have to force myself to limit my colors and made sure I did it with this one.

I agree about the color palette. It really fits the mood of the illustration. I also enjoyed the thumbnail sketches.

Thanks, Alex. Your work is great. Just checked out the blog. Looks like you're in my neck of the woods. I'm just outside of DC....
