President Trump

“When you’re a star, they let you do it. You can do anything. Grab ’em by the pussy. You can do anything.” 

...I'm just leaving this here, drawn swiftly in a moment of extreme distaste yesterday morning.

Sniffer dogs, cheese, sausages & class A drugs.

This article was begging to be illustrated (no pun intended) It's from an article in The Daily Telegraph headlined ‘Manchester Airport Sniffer Dogs Find Cheese & Sausages - But No Class A Drugs’ in which they found the sniffer dogs were more interested in cheese & sausages than cocaine et al. Now, at this juncture I'm tempted to interject 'who'd have thought?' but I feel resorting to low sarcasm for comic effect is below me.

Another illustration for 'Burglar Trade Secrets' from Which? magazine (apparently dogs & cameras aren't too popular with the burglar community - let alone dogs WITH cameras!)

United Kingdom of UKIP?

I drew this in response to an article by Marina Hyde in The Guardian. The absolute nonsense & outright lies involved in the both sides of the EU Referendum have been pretty lousy throughout but I find Nigel Farage & his pandering to lowest common denominator racism & his 'ordinary bloke' schtick particularly odious

The Economist Feb 7th - An Investor Calls

 I was commissioned to produce these illustrations for The Economist for an article called 'An Investor Calls' about the impact of certain hedge fund activists on businesses - you can read this far more eloquently in the original article
My idea of 'activist' was rather different to what the article was actually speaking about but once I'd been put onto the right track (no V for Vendetta masks et al!)  I had decided to make the activist female in the original roughs but was informed that all the activists the journalist had researched & spoken to were men so this was duly amended in the final illustration - here's a before / after for your edification

The Economist - 'Criminalising the American Company'

Some recent illustrations I did for The Economist magazine dated 30th August 2014 for an article about 'Criminalising the American Company' (where I somehow managed to avoid giving the cop a doughnut in the picture - great restraint May!) - you can read the article here

Economist June 2013

Illustration for The Economist international section on 'Shell companies' - untraceable companies which exist on paper only and are the vehicle of choice for money launderers, bribe givers and takers, tax evaders and financiers of terrorism.

'Mr Cameron has emphasised the importance of “breaking through the walls of corporate secrecy”.'

(& I love a bit of chiarascuro on a Friday too! : )

The Economist - Data Starvation

Recent illustration  for The Economist Technology Quarterly about the technical challenges of effective communications under the sea.
i.e. it's difficult to update your Facebook status if you don't want the enemy finding out about your sandwich of choice etc.
