This illustration was put together 6 hours after the announcement
of a new Pontiff at the head of the Catholic Church.
I wanted to test myself on how quickly I could respond to current events and create a portrait of someone who was relatively unknown to the world one minute - and then everywhere the next. That's what editorial illustration is about in my opinion - reaction.
This image is not a religous statement or even a political one for that matter. It is an impartial portrayal of an individual for publication.
