The Revolt of the Elites and Uglytopia
Cover art for the Spectator Australia on the topic of Australia's cultural elite: a book review by Liberal Opposition Leader Tony Abbott on Nick Cater's 'The Lucky Culture'. I did relish the opportunity to draw a hipster!
It was a fast turnaround, as I'd already drawn the cover art on Miranda Devine's column 'Uglytopia' on Obama's recent collision with political correctness (see below) - but that was bumped to the interior and they needed something new for the Abbott piece. So again, a very busy week! Please click for a closer look!
Here's how they ended up in print. I had to change the girl's red hair to brunette, as The Spectator Australia so often runs political covers, he didn't want her being confused with our red-headed PM, Julia Gillard.
Thanks for stopping by, and make sure to pick up a copy if you're so inclined...
