Here’s my illustration for the cover of POLITICO. The article was an editorial questioning the way Hungarian politicians in Brussels are viewed by their compatriots in the European Commission, and the effect of their outspoken Prime Minister Viktor Orbán’s hardline views on the EU’s open border policies.
I wanted to put across the feeling of discord and isolation as not everything in the Union is in unison. There is an unease amongst the representatives in the European Parliament. Is it getting harder to ignore the different ways in which each country wants the Union to work and whether certain countries are being ostracised for what the politicians back home are saying and doing?
It will be interesting to see how the article is received in Budapest and Brussels and if this editorial has a prophetic narrative for the future of the European Union.
