Swine flu gets the Ashes treatment by Morland

The Times‘ Norwegian satirical politcal cartoonist, Morten Morland freqently delivers great insight onto topical issues with the stroke of his pen. What is quite striking about his style, is his tendency to cleverly merge two newsworthy subjects from completely different sections of the paper, juxtaposed to create a strong image with a cutting underlying message.

Case in point was today’s offering which I found particularly striking and worthy of sharing:

And the below, after a particularly vociferous day in Parliament within the Wimbledon fortnight, shows another of his sporting endeavours. Disappointingly, he doesn’t seem to have published a book collecting together his best work (though I’m sure there will be one forthcoming) so for the time being check out his stuff online here.
