Global Over Development Inc.
Global Overdevelopment Inc. or G.O.D. is a fact based satirical book by Crawford Hollingworth which looks at how our world is really run. It takes the form of an annual report detailing how the world is being kept fat, divided, filthy, homogenised, cramped, perverse and monitored: the paradox of progress.

The book uses typography, photography and my illustrations to bring the author's vision of these worlds to life. For more info check out these overviews at The Independent and The Ecologist and look at some preview pages on Amazon.

G.O.D. Inc. / The Family
The Family occupy a future we have created for them, oblivious and happy to the ruined world in which they live.

The characters needed to represent four generations, each more obese than the last. They appear in comic panels within each of the 7 CEOs' worlds so I wanted them to be memorable like a syndicated strip and recognisable from their outlines.
L-R: great-grandfather, great-grandmother, teen son, aunt, father, mother, infant son, teen daughter, grandmother and grandfather.
