Total Shambles

Influx Press asked me to create an illustration that could be used as a wrap-around cover for a memoir by George F called Total Shambles. It was about squatting in the early 2000s in London, when squatting to become more and more difficult as various different bits got sold off to private investors. It’s around the same time I was squatting so it was great to have the chance to be involved with the project. Part of the book features a squat group called the White Rhino crew, and that seemed like an obvious starting point for the illustration. The book was published in March 2015.
