Winning Minds Secrets From The Language Of Leadership

Above are illustrations I drew for Simon Lancaster's recently published book, Winning Minds Secrets From The Language Of Leadership. Simon is a successful speech writer who has written for many top politicians, including Alan Johnson, and business leaders. Often, Simon appears on Sky and BBC News due to his expertise. 

This is the second of Simon's books that I have provided illustrations for. Previously, I worked on his book Speech Writing The Expert Guide. It was a job that took a few weeks to finish and I enjoyed very much. (I'll post those illustrations here sometime in the near future). 

For Winning Minds, I had only three days to produce eleven brain diagrams and these eight drawings. It was a daunting task and was hard work (by my standards, anyway) but great fun. For the drawings, I allowed myself just two hours to complete each of them and managed to keep to this limit. Although I think it's clear that some are better than others, I was quite pleased with how they turned out overall and feel that they compare favourably with the drawings I did for Simon before. 

Here's a link to Simon's book.
