Your Unnecessary Spot Illustration of the Day, or, Goldman Sacked

Swell pun, huh? I did this for the New Yorker some years ago to illustrate an article about the history of Goldman Sachs, with some emphasis on the firm's culture of secrecy. And now I don't remember exactly what the auction angle was. But I do remember the story wasn't exactly complimentary. I post it to show that there's no important news story that I haven't illustrated, whether I can remember why I did it or not. I got so many piles of old drawings lying around that I might as well post 'em because I don't know waht else to do with them. I do know that I'm happiest with the little pink ears on the guys in the back row there.

Looks like it was in the March 8, 1999 issue, which requires a subscription to read the whole thing.

The summary says the article makes the point, "greed is bad." Maybe they were auctioning greed? I never understand finance stuff...
