ETF Overload


There's something fishy about this illustration, which appears in today's Wall Street Journal. It accompanies a story about screening the myriad of ETF funds flooding the market.

Maybe because I'm a Pisces, there's something very satisfying about drawing these underwater inhabitants. Thanks to Orlie Kraus and Jia Baek for another fun assignment!


Here are some the ideas I submitted for this story:
