good enough for gov't work



I just came up with these pics real quick to go with a presentation for the Energy White Paper (the UK government's response to climate change and energy security). Government imagery often looks so frightfully earnest; I tried to make these look at least a little cheeky.



(Non-UK people: that huge medallion thingie around her neck makes her a mayor, not a rapper, in case you were confused.)

Thanks, David! I wasn't sure I liked her hair being the same colour as her face, but I didn't want to add any more colours to the palette, and brown made it too heavy. Glad you think it works! It looks better to me in the morning. :-)

didn't even notice the hair color
The hair is fine. The red blazer is especially nice.
