I wanted to do something bold, simple and graphic so used Charcoal and paint for this image.
It's for a semi regular Illustrators Ireland (www.illustratorsireland.com) feature.
The feature is a 'One-Word Brief' and this weeks word is:
1. A person who has recently attained high position or great power without
due effort or merit; an upstart.
2. An unscrupulous, vulgar social climber; a bounder.
[French, from arriver, to arrive, from Old French ariver.]
