Tesla by Loopydave Tesla by Loopydave
Trying something a little 'old school-y'... drawing from this years 'inktober'

Fineliner on paper, text added in photoshop as my calligraphy needs a bit of work.

EDIT: Now available on a T-shirt at www.redbubble.com/people/loopy… if you are into that kind of thing!
Edison offered Tesla $50,000 to redesign his company’s DC generators and then refused to pay… but, for FAR FAR less, you can have a T-shirt that already works efficiently and Tesla won’t have to resign in protest this time.

Oh my god, this is wonderful. Tesla is my scientific idol. I wish he was more popular...

I think his name is slowly getting more recognition ... certainly there is more awareness of his contribution in the last 10 years or so!
Glad you like :)

This is amazing! Love the looks you pulled off. Big fan of Tesla and his works myself so it's nice to see someone pay homage to him, especially in such a great art-style. Great approach to Edison as well.

Didn't really have an opinion on him... but after reading up about Tesla and Edison, do feel that Edison was a self serving individual with low integrity.

Joe Rogan podcast recently inspired me to read up on Tesla which confirmed some of my thoughts about the idea of "genius" largely being a marketing ploy.  Very cute idea.  Favorited it.  If you get a chance please add me or check out my page as well.  Thanks.

Hehe this is for sure a clever cartoon. Humoristic, and I like the metaphoric use of the lamp as symbol of idea, combined with the objectivity plan, Edison's the invention...
