A British Subject

colour, editorial, illustration, process

I really enjoyed illustrating Frederic Raphael’s short story, A British Subject. Set in a gentleman’s club (not the sexual kind) it follows a few characters stories over a game of bridge and a whisky sour. Below are my rough ideas, and the final I went for.

Should art be more political?

colour

For the RA Magazine’s debate section. The question featured in this issue was: Should art be more political? The AD wanted the illustration response to remain impartial to either side, so what better than a ballot box! Thanks to Tom Pollard from Design by St.
