The dream of the naive...
I created this two-page spread last year and was really happy with how it turned out. Ironically, the message is even more fitting now than when I created it.
I drew it with a Pitt Brush Marker and colored it in Painter. I love Painter! What a great program. And unlike Photoshop, a person can actually afford to buy it. And they make actual improvements with each version.
The story starts out with the Marxist ideal--the workers win, the evil bourgeoisie has lost. But as the story progresses, you see that unions aren't the saviors they promise to be, and socialism just won't work. It's very appropriate given the socialist agendas of both presidential candidates.
