Editorial Illustration for New Turn magazine

This is a commission I did for New Turn magazine. Editorial / political illustration is something I really enjoy and am currently working on other articles at the moment. The brief was to show Scottish First minister Alex Salmond, with the Scottish flag, treading over some history books (also dressed in traditional Scottish wear- as ‘Brave Heart!’). An online version of the magazine can be found here: www.newturn.org.uk. It’s a very interesting read with social, political and cultural comment. Being able to illustrate in an honest, experimental way, on adult subjects has been liberating! The drawing on the cover shown, was by another illustrator JMC, and the writer of the article I took on, was Matthew Bremner, the art director of Blue Period Art.
