" What about the workers ? "

This is a caricature of a genuine union 'heavy' - Joe McDonald of the CFMEU. An old fashioned union official who I think was brought in the Tardus from the early 70's !!
Throughly enjoyed exploring painting with textures in PS - another one for the new website.
Some cosmetic finishing off to do, I might earmark it for the Michael Collins Award later this year.
The slippers - they just seemed to suit him !!

Muy bueno Tel gran caricatura, me hace acordar a un humorista de mi pais que ya fallecio, se llamaba el gordo Porcel y se hizo muy conocido por las peliculas que hacia con Alberto Olmedo, noce si los conoces poro te lo queria contar.
Un abrazo.
