New Colonials

Illustration for The Spectator (UK) on the New Colonials running Britain.  The 'Dominions' are rapidly gaining dominion over Britons. With Aussies, Canadians and Kiwis taking over in the British establishment's positions of power, in an article by James Forsyth.

I came up with the idea of having an Aussie rogue wearing a corkscrew-dangling crown.  I also added the Canadian and Zimbabwean flags to incorporate some of the other powerbrokers mentioned in the article.  Oh, and the editor asked me to add a cigarette in there as a little dig to Aussie  strategist  Lynton Crosby, who has been in trouble recently for backing tobacco companies and blocking plain packaging.

Pick up a copy - out now at newsstands and digital app everywhere.  I'm sure this will run in the Aussie edition, too.

Thanks for stopping by!
