Politico Illustration

I was approached by the Art Director of Politico Europe to produce an illustration in response to an article about Angela Merkel apologising over international and national affairs. This would be for their ever-growing Instagram following.

The aim was to create a simplistic, yet engaging illustration for their Instagram feed. I was in isolation when this commission arrived. So with limited equipment - as I wasn't allowed to my studio - I managed to improvise and produce this piece.

I definitely succeeded as the post now near 500 likes.
