Mugabe Sculpt

Time for another competition. This is again for the NCN Forum. The challenge for this one is to create a sculpture of a politician, including a narrative gag. My chosen subject is Robert Mugabe. This is my first sketch, which shows the Union Jack dripping away from his face. Even though he has pulled Zimbabwe out of the Commonwealth, he still holds the position of Knight Commander of the Order of the Bath, given to him by Queen Elizabeth II.

I shall look forward to posting my progress here. I want to do a few more sketches to get his likeness just right before I start the sculpting process. Can't tell you how much I'm looking forward to this! I've been wanting to do some sculpture for ages.
