"Despite Fed Backstop, Junk Bonds Still Face Big Trouble"
Honestly I think this was such a joy to work on. Ideas always fly out in a stream... We have been caught in a routine at home mot seeing any of the family we've lost track of what day it is. When I started this painting I remembered something Yuko Shimizu said once about how she likes to put something into every illustration that she's not quite comfortable with to push her self. The water on this one was certainly like that. Trying to make it look huge in scale, like a Black hole going to swallow the ship up. I picked kind of a medium six bat to emulate the shall "Junk" bonds . I had to resist using a Chinese Junk because that seemed just way to obvious...
