This is a commission piece I finished in late Autumn 2016. Little did the man who commissioned it (nor I) think it would be hanging in a front room at the same time Trump won the American presidency, but we're living in strange times. The idea came off the back of a brainstorm where we batted around ideas involving Trump and Thatcher in a filmic scenario (at one point it was going to ape the 'I'm the King of the World' bit from Titanic). My Lady & The Tramp pastiche was the idea we settled on and I still think this is one of the best illustrations I've done. It contains a number of elements that make up my 'trademark' style, including a touch of collage (Trumps's tie), separately illustrated hair pieces (up close Thatcher's 'Iron Barnet' has a really nice sheen to it - probably because I spent so much time colouring it with a variety of pencils and pens), lapel pin badges (just to add some extra detail and some added evil) and lots of coloured card. A2 giclee prints are available if you're the kind of person that likes a 'talking point' on their wall (and isn't instantly sickened by the thought of the two protagonists staring down at them somewhere in their home).
