Let Them Eat Cake



I've never really done a poster illustration, so this is somewhat of a first for me. I decided to tackle the current economic/Wall Street issue, but using less of a "doom-and-gloom" approach (and I wanted it to have the feel of a fashion illustration). I think the situation at the time of the French Revolution relates well to today.

Hahaha...yes, Matt, never a dull moment in my home state. Actually, Diane Sawyers just did a documentary on people in Appalachia called "Hidden America" that you should watch. I think there are clips of it on YouTube. There's a segment on how people in Southeastern Kentucky are addicted to Mountain Dew...I remember my next-door neighbors stockpiling it in their basement! Where ya been these days? You still living with Tom?

Thanks for the feedback, everyone!
