Stock Market Scrabble


Illustration assignments are often indicators of economic trends. As an example, this is my third drawing in recent weeks about ETF funds; investment vehicles that are becoming increasingly popular on Wall Street. This image accompanied a story about the importance of naming a ticker symbol for a new fund. Picking a catchy name can draw attention to your product, much like a vanity plate on an automobile. For the Wall Street Journal editors, this 'Scrabble' theme best captured the story's spirit. I hope you get a kick of these ideas I ticked off for this assignment!
