Taxline - Editorial Cover Illustration

Taxline is a subscription publication about finance, they needed a cover illustration for HMRC’s new legislation “Spotlight 47’ which is about tax avoidance. The image I created depicts a business woman caught in a spotlight looking sneaky beneath a manhole cover, which has ‘47’ debossed into it. The brief required delicate pastel tones and careful arrangement of the image to avoid the more intricate text areas. The soft pastel hues emulate the warm glow of a sunset within the street scene.
