Gaddafi and the hidden wealth

My first illi about Gaddafi! It's always a pleasure to to be working on something that is very HOT in the news room. There have been tons of articles about this man and his country but none landed on my Wacom pen for illis.

A cool idea to make Gaddafi into a tree and i have to say, it's really a huge challenge. When i look at a picture of this man, i always think how easy it is to draw his face. Every feature on his face is very recognizable! But making him into a tree gave me an extra stretch. His son wasn't so bad at all. :D

The beautiful thing about this page was that, the bleed on the bottom was taken off!! The illustration flowed right until were it faded at the very tip of the paper. Aweesssooommenessttt!! It gave the whole page more kick.

Gaddafi's son Seif al-Islam. Can i just say he's kinda cute? OK i will shatap now. :|
