Illustrating the Banyan Column for The Economist

I've been illustrating the weekly "Banyan" column for the Economist, on the subject of Asian politics. The topics lend themselves well to conceptual illustration.

"Burying Asia's Savage Past", for The Economist

"The party goes on", for The Economist

After Tiananmen, who would think that China's Communist Party would grow in popularity? I tried to convey the irony portrayed in this recent Banyan article that focuses on propaganda and perception.
