Editorial illustration I made for Nottingham's LeftLion Magazine to accompany an article called 'How Soon Is Mao?' featuring an interview with author Rhiannon Jenkins Tsang on her new book 'The Woman Who Lost China.' The book tells a tale surrounding 1949-era China, when the Chinese Republic was being overtaken by Chairman Mao's communist regime.
I also did the page design and typography, which I created to reflect the lettering used in Chinese propaganda art of the time. The article text fills lined background on the page.
You can find the article and artwork in LeftLion Issue #54 (Aug-Sep 2013) here:
