The European Union as a gluttonous shark.

The illustrator describes his style as simple, flat, textured—mixed with a good dose of dark humor. He says: “Because of my design and branding background, I can illustrate in many different ways but I try to be true to myself… I believe that illustrators can be more than just one-style-ponies. I believe we can be thinkers, writers, researchers, and strategists too. I believe we can be a part of the process, to create something more unique and more effective.”

A few examples of his politically charged illustrations can be found below. For more, please visit Pete Reynolds’ website.
