Double Covers: Gilded & Alarmists

Helluvah week!  Lots of commission work, including rush covers for both the UK and Australian editions of The Spectator.  A lot of fun, though.  In fact, sometimes I prefer the quick deadlines: less time to over-think things. Here's the UK cover, some British Hipsters as 'The Gilded Generation'.

And below is the Australian cover, illustrating an article by Nigel Lawson on his experience with climate change 'dissent'.

I've had the privilege of gracing quite a few covers of The Spectator Australia this year, and am pleased to showcase them here for you, in reverse order of publication. Many thanks to editor Tom Switzer for allowing me creative freedom, and also providing clear direction when needed.

Please click each image to read a little more, and in some cases see the process: thumbnails, roughs, sketches, inks and colour.
