Kessels Kramer New Tapestry Project

I was invited to participate in the new project by Kessels Kramer. The project is basically a recreation of the old Bayeux Tapestry, which depicted the major news events of 1066. The project is being called 'The New Tapestry', and it consists of illustrators from around the world, contributing black and white images depicting the major news events of today.

I was given 'Week 7' of 2009 to illustrate, (Feb. 9th - 14th). I went with the news article about the US Senate approving Obama's $838bn Economic Stimulus Plan right after a $1.5 trillion Bank Bail Out.
