December 4, 2011

With lots going on in the financial markets, here’ s a snapshot of how my illustrations have covered the news.  First off, Chancellor George Osborne gives his Autumn Statement to the House of Commons:

Plus here are some of my illustrations of the euro crisis:

This colour rough shows my first composition for the cover, with Berlusconi flanked by two women rather than one.  In the end though, it was decided to just have one woman in the picture to place more emphasis on Berlusconi himself:
