    Bill, your illustrations are the very best. You’re the Rockwell of the 21st century, except your covers are humorous rather than evocative. It’s your covers that sell The Week (and I hope the editor understands this!). Where can I buy a collection of your best covers for The Week? Don’t tell me there isn’t one! That would be a tragic missed opportunity.


  2. Dear mcbillhow,

    All you cover illustrations for “The Week” Magazine are excellent – topical, humurous and a telling example of satire at it’s best.

    Your latest cover – “Boris leads the Charge” is brilliant, based as it is, on a courageous incident from the battle of Waterloo. In that battle the Heavy Cavalry Brigades defeated two French Infantry divisions and several French Cavalry Regiments, gaining two Imperial Eagles a great feat. But out of over 2,000 men who charged that day, regrettably only a handful survived. At least you chose the right cavalry charge from history for the Voteleave contingent, the charge of the Light Brigade later in the Crimea would not have been so good.

    Please keep your prolific works of inspired artistry flowing.

      Very eagle-eyed of you to spot the specific battle reference, Stuart — I’m impressed! Let’s see if your intuition about the VoteLeave campaign is borne out though, the way things are going I’m not sure it’s looking so certain! Thanks for the kind words either way.

        I’m very much with Stuart about the latest cover, Howard – one of your best. I love the sense of excitement and ‘blood up’ you convey.
