The Propagandist

For our first project this year we had to design a 20 page A2 size newspaper. We were asked to research current stories from a range of newspapers and choose one topic or story and style/stance to base our own on. Much publicised that week was Kim Jong Il's son's introduction to North Korea as their future leader. After further reading and watching the unsettling documentary Welcome to Korea I decided to base my entire newspaper on the subject.
I produced naive, hand-rendered drawings to highlight the ridiculousness of this shambolic pantomime-government, in the gritty realism of black & white.
I'll put some images of the final designed newspaper up soon, still have some further work to do on them at the moment.
