Pen & ink – Wall Street Bull

ink drawing of bull on wall street

“Charging Bull”
pen & ink
8″x10″

My drawing is based on the bronze sculpture by Arturo Di Modica in New York City. It has a sketchy feel to it as I deliberately left it looking unfinished.

I recently saw the movie trailer for Martin Scorsese’s latest film “The Wolf of Wall Street” coming out later this year. I’m looking forward to the movie – it looks great – fast-paced, dark, funny. So I have the bull on the brain – it’s such an iconic image of the stock market and the financial industry.

I borrowed the memoir – same title by Jordan Belfort from the library and I’m about to read it. It’s about greed, excess, market manipulation, drugs and so on (nothing I know of personally btw)… but sure looks entertaining. This subject has been treated before in other films like The Boiler Room and Wall Street but this one by Scorsese appears to have more of a comic, manic tone to it.
