Very excited to have 3 illustrations in Fridays Guardian. I have had illustrations in many newspapers before, but The Guardian was one I had aspired to work with since graduating. Only took me 11 years, but got there in the end.

I used the analogy of a deep rooted blooming tree harming the seedlings and trees growing underneath it by starving them of light and water.
