The Economist: “Europe’s rescue plan” October 29th-November 4th, 2011, vol. 401, no. 8757, cover illustration by Kevin Kallaugher a.k.a. KAL

This cover was designed and illustrated by Kevin Kallaugher a.k.a. KAL, the editorial cartoonist for The Economist. He commented the creative process behind this cover on his “sketchblog”:

I drew the cover for this week’s edition of The Economist. I worked closely with the cover designer in London on this one. We decided to pursue a more “graphic” version than the normally painterly style from the past.

He also provided the original concept drawing for the cover:
