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 :)

Yeah, definitely.
He's my favorite scientist. I did a project on him once.

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...
