'The Republican Party Isn't Dead'

'The Republican Party Isn't Dead'

An illustration for an Opinion piece in the Boston Globe newspaper. The editorial discussed how the Republican party will move on after Mitt Romney's defeat in the 2012 US presidential election, and notes that the 2016 election will likely see a Republican candidate far younger than the Democrat.

The art director was keen to use some kind of deconstruction of the Republicans' famous elephant icon. I drew up a number of ideas, and we settled on this, an elephant being rebuilt from lego-style building blocks- alluding to this more youthful future.
