Defending the ABC

Continuing on with the Double Spectator Week is the Australian edition cover: "In defence of the ABC"... 'Defending the ABC' for The Spectator Australia.  Illustration © Anton Emdin 2013.  All rights reserved.

I had to read the editor's brief on this a few times to make sure I was understanding it correctly!  You see, The Spectator Australia has been critical of the ABC in the past, but this editorial defends them against attacks from other media (which includes high profile conservatists) in relation to the breaking of the Indonesian spying story.  Why?  On the grounds of editorial independence.  A great leader story well worth a read.

Here's the raw art, below:

And a quick process: from thumbnails #1 (carrying 'Aunty') and #2 through to sketch, inks (drawn the good old fashioned way with brush and ink) to base and shaded colour (digital). Please click for a closer look...
