Race to Replace Mark Carney Is Another Brexit Battleground


Commissioned | New Talent

Why did you make this work:
It was an illustrative brief given to me by the commissioner. (The race to claim the UK’s most powerful unelected job – that of Bank of England Governor – is yet to reach a climax. The Brexit bush telegraph is already humming with accusations of skullduggery, however.)

How was the illustration used:
Editorial illustration in The Daily Telegraph and The Telegraph Online.

How did you make this work:
The illustrative idea was formed through visual problem solving and conceptual thinking, then created digitally using Procreate on the iPad Pro with Apple Pencil, referenced from my own photos and imagination. All elements are hand-drawn.
