Der Spiegel cover
posted:

I was commissioned be Stefan Kiefer at Der Spiegel to create a cover for this week's issue.   They had seen some of the work I've been doing on China taking over the world and wanted something for the topic of this week's issue "China's World, What Does the New Superpower Want?".  There's an image I did earlier this year of a Chinese globe, which they liked, but it didn't seem strong enough for a cover.   So I worked up some more sketches and ended up doing a more graphic, colorful, and tighter version of that idea.  Great working with Stefan and very happy to have done my first Der Spiegel cover.  Some of the other sketches are below:
