Editorial illustration commissioned to accompany an article featured in The New Internationalist magazine, highlighting the global network of shadowy high level figures who operate and grease the wheels of the multi-billion pound arms trade. I considered a pastiche of the Reservoir Dogs film poster would serve to convey the sometimes grubby nature of the arms industry and depicting various archetypes as bank robbers taking money that could be better spent on other causes.

The article and illustration are also published online at: http://www.newint.org/features/2011/12/01/corruption-in-the-arms-trade/
