Hot off the press...

Last week I did an illustration for Dutch newspaper 'De Pers' (which is Dutch for 'the press'; explaining this posts lame pun title). It's out today (the second dimension to the lameness at the top). To my slight surprise they used it for the front page. The dimensions they gave me weren't big enough so they had to blow up the illustration to make it fit, coupling that to the fact that they print at 200dpi for some reason, made the piece turn out a bit fuzzy.
The article is about a story you might have heard before: the wa.. bankers of the world, running the global economy into the ground, having taxpayers bail them out and then demanding bonuses to boot.

Here are the initial doodlings:

The cleaned up drawing and sketch I presented to client:

And the final thing:

And the finished result as they used it (explains all the space around the bird):

This concludes my blog of today, thank you for viewing. Please feel free to leave a comment.
