Here’s a new piece for San Francisco Magazine about the murky world of Bitcoin trading. I’ve been really fascinated by the whole bitcoin thing for a while now so it was great to have an excuse to spend time learning more about it. Also, for the record, this came out before the big Newsweek cover.

Here are a couple of the other sketch ideas that i submitted. They all revolve around poker, which we thought was a good metaphor for risky high stakes trading. It’s actually pretty rare that my favorite sketch is the one the art director and editors decide to go with but it happened this time.

Big thanks to A.D. Rod Escobar and thanks for looking!
