Well, that’s one of my first works after I signed a contract with IQ. The Economist — the Lithuanian partner of The “Economist“. For a long time I was looking forward to work with some… thing, which would fit into my understanding of intelligent Lithuanian press, and it looks like this one is a real candidate.
Yes, that’s our President Dalia Grybauskaitė as she was portrayed in an article — mysteriously unclear political views, iron-fist kind of behaviour, etc. And OMG, they have placed a print from a magazine with the drawing in it in the official presidential webpage. Hm… whatta great chance to be (un)noticed by authorities.
Anyway, nothing radical here, just a rather plain metaphor — oldschool drawing with a subtle XIX century fragrance. Why so? Because I like it so.
