Brash Thatcher Cover Art
For this illustration I didn't receive an article to read first, so I had to go on a short summary and cues from the editor over the phone. Unfortunately, we had a bad line, but the gist I understood was that it was to be a scenario in which Margaret Thatcher was whipping New Zealand pollie Don Brash, saying "Down, boy!".
I submitted the rough, below, but it seemed I had the tone wrong with Brash's body language...
... so I revised the sketch, making Brash a rabid attack dog, literally. The sketch below was approved...
... and I moved onto the ink and colour. Below is the final art. Please click for a closer view.
