Guardian Education 23 October 07


Here's a piece I did last Friday for today's Guardian Education.

Written by the ever-brilliant Phil Beadle. it was an article about the links between Poverty and performance in Education, and twice mentions a "Magic Bullet", a single solution to all problems
So, here it is.... the Magic Bullet, waving his wand and erasing the cracks

I'm rather cheekily including this in this week's Illustration Friday. The topic is 'Grow' and what is Education if not a form of Growth (Discuss and summarize in under 100 words)?

Here's the ruffest of roughs that I sent them

Wonderful illustration - it's interesting to see the ruf next to the final artwork, too.

Fantastic! My favorite part is the nose.

As someone who was in the education field for 5+ years, I got sooo tired of hearing about that dang magic bullet. (No Child Left Behind being the biggest crock...*ahem*) However, I can almost smile at this guy. Beautiful colors and composition.
