Which? Magazine editorial cartoons
Self-initiated project | July 2013 - present | Digital renderings
Various editorial illustrations for Which? magazine.
My first commission for Which? in July 2013, for an article entitled 'What's Driving Up My Car Insurance Premium?'. It uses a bird's eye view isometric format which allows for a clear and even composition in which many characters and car insurance-related scenarios can be shown.
This detail shows a family with their house and car; also a motorist who has parked to study his road atlas.
This detail shows a man who has just acquired his driving license leaving a DVLA offlce, and an unemployed man leaving a job centre.
This detail shows a man looking at car insurance deals on a laptop outside a cafe, and a speeding driver jumping a red light.
The second editorial commission by Which? Magazine in August 2013, for an article entitled 'The Great Extended Warranties Rip-Off'. Various scenarios within an electronics shop, loosely based on shops such as Currys, Dixons or Maplin, are shown. The dialogue was supplied by the client and are based on real-life examples of what assistants have told customers.
This detail shows an assistant in the process of processing the sale of a product at the checkout desk and handing the customer the warranty. Immediately behind the customer stands a repairman, as mentioned by the assistant.
This detail shows an assistant (modelled on Simon Pegg's character in Shaun of the Dead - notice he has red on him!*) telling the customer that their washing machine is fully covered for any eventuality, however absurd; another assistant demonstrates what he is talking about. * - this was entirely my idea and was a fun little reference to include.
This detail shows an assistant speaking with a customer about televisions. The display of flat screen TVs behind them shows a broadcast by BBC News.
This detail shows a further incidental scene where two customers are trying out audio equipment. Some are loosely based on real-life models.
The third commission by Which? in December 2013, to illustrate an article about customers' rights when returning faulty electronic goods to shops. This is the first of two illustrations for this article.
