Where The Wind Blows

Where The Wind Blows

Editorial Illustration for the Telegraph's property section.

The article was about how roof tiles come loose from the gable end of buildings, why often expensive solutions don't work and how the problem should be fixed.

A playful approach was needed to explain and liven up quite a dry subject. In the illustration a home owner looks on as his tiles blow away from his roof. Atop his roof he has a weathervane in the shape of a roofer drilling down tiles. This roofer references the remedy for the problem and the cause, as in the U.K it is usually East /West winds that are to blame.
