This illustration demonstrates the facts and statistics of the 2012 Greek Financial Crisis. The information written inside the flaming Molotov Cocktail is an allegory. It represents political and financial instability as the driving force behind the violent riots and civil unrest.
The design and colour palette of the poster pays tribute to Ancient Greek vase painting. The entire composition was hand drawn in ink, then scanned to give the poster an organic and hand made appearance. I felt that a hand-illustrated infographic was the most effective way to communicate the emotions and chaos of the Greek Financial Crisis.
