Progress Update: The Universe in Yuan and Dollars
Most of these are really rough screencaps of what I have been working on this week. I am still exploring the idea of the eastern and western economies; where the economies war and intersect, and who will win.

I'm also working with more illustration. Unfortunately the dimension of the fortune cookie doesn't replicate well and I want to integrate the text more thoroughly. Then I got sidetracked and started to sketch.
I plan to collate this more neatly but I thought I'd share this weeks work.
