This was possibly the hardest I've ever had to work on an illustration, but I learnt a lot through the process. From first contact to finished piece was over a week, but by the time sketching and composition decisions were approved, I had roughly 4 and a half days to render, and I needed nearly every minute of that time to finish. Towards the end there was very little, in fact none, time for thinking, and it was purely a case of stamina and endurance that got me through it. There are many things I would like to fix if I could go back and have an extra half a day added to the deadline, such as repainting Andrew Lloyd Webber, but as that's impossible I have to accept it for what it is. I'm happy with the end result, and I'm honoured to have been asked to do it in the first place.
The celebs included going clockwise from the left are: Miranda Hart, Hugh Dennis, French and Saunders, Andrew Lloyd Webber, Ian Hislop, Les Goodman, Jo Brand, Sandi Toksvig and Kylie Minogue.

I'm not a big fan of Clarkson, I very rarely watch Top Gear, but the way people have reacted to this is extraordinary, mainly people on Twitter calling for him to be sacked. How can anyone truly believe that he would want someone shot? In fact he actually defended the strikers earlier in the programme, but the people complaining were probably the ones who didn't see that part of the show. It reminds me of the uproar by the church after 'Life of Brian' was released. Seriously...calm down people. This link might shed some light on it. http://www.metro.co.uk/news/883625-jeremy-clarkson-compares-shooting-furore-to-sachs-gate-as-21k-complain
To sum up, if Clarkson were a politician, I'd be extremely worried, but he's not, he just wants to sell his DVD, which by most accounts is storming up the christmas charts ;)
