Project description:

I was commissioned by The Times to create a 12-panel comic for the article “An ordinary man on a bad day, he changed the world for ever”. The comic depicts the events of December 17, 2010 that would end in the death of the 26-year-old Tunisian street trader Mohamed Buazizi, sparking protests that would topple his country’s president and unseat Hosni Mubarak, igniting a firestorm of anger across the Arab world from Tunisia to Jordan to Egypt.

The making of this project can be view on my sketch blog.
