Flashback 2007: The Winners and Losers of Globalization

Weekly illustration for a newspaper section on globalisation in de Volkskrant.

This year Leon Mussche illustration exists 10 years. A good opportunity to look back, and dig up some older work of the last 10 years. I will post a flashback of a favorite project of every year. This week: 2007: The winners and losers of globalization for de Volkskrant newspaper

In 2007 I started illustrating a weekly spot in de Volkskrant newspaper section ‘Winners and Losers.’ A column on Globalisation and its effects on different parts of  the world. De Volkskrant is a national newspaper in the Netherlands and the section lasted several years. It was an interesting column with small articles of news from around the world. The growth of SMS in Africa, premium coffee from Ethiopia, and Bollywood overtaking Hollywood were typical subjects I illustrated. I had been working for the newspaper since 2003. I always enjoyed doing newspaper illustrations, there is a lot of freedom and little time for discussion as the subject usually comes in a day before publication.
