In the four years since we first featured him, Mitch Blunt has transformed from a fresh-faced graduate with a penchant for traditional print processes into an editorial illustration maven whose images are in demand by the most elite publishers of breaking news. This demand is the result of Mitch’s innate ability to tell complex and often politically charged stories with the simplest of imagery; analogising the current climate in Ukraine with a rowdy bear or transforming handcuffs into a pair of swimming goggles to accompany a story about an Olympic athlete’s fall from grace. Their universality means they’re always a welcome addition the the accompanying editorials, summarising succinctly what a journalist may take hundreds of words to communicate. Always a pleasure Mitch!
