Ir-Realtà, a student newspaper that focuses on objective commentary on current affairs, was looking for an illustrator to embellish their front cover.

At the time the General Election, an era of heated arguments and passionate confrontations, was around the corner so we thought it was fitting to reflect this in the illustration. To this end I created caricatures of the main political rivals fighting for the much-debated “Siġġu tal-Poter” (lit. The Chair of Power) with a parrot (a reference to a rebellious politician who was a protagonist in the political scene at the time) looking eagerly on.
