A section of an illustrated journal i did for diplo magazine. I had a contact who was working in the labour party who had an office within the Houses of Parliament. So i decided to pay him a visit armed with a sketch book and a batch of pencils. With his help i managed to sketch quiet a lot on the sly, in the process, captured on paper- small details such as vending machines for tights?, small speakers in the seats of the commons for the hard of hearing and the HP club bicycle.

An Illustrated Journal Piece about Brian Haw- I decided to spent a few days with Parliament Square's most famous tenant. At first, I felt I was an unwelcome guest. But after sketching a few protest signs, a few old supporters of Brain etc.. Brian began to see me as less of a threat, and began preaching to me, the word of brian; such as: "R.A.F. stands for- Rule All Foreigners.....did you get that alex? Rule All FOREIGNERS". Then he offered me a commission that i should paint him a new protest sign. I kept silent and just listened; I did this piece for diplo magazine in 05- Brian had been there already for 4 years, and he's still there today. Although, he now sports a white beard.
