I made this illustration for The New Republic for an article titled “Unchecked Power - How monopolies have flourished—and undermined democracy by Ganesh Sitaraman”.
The drawing is based on a classic caricature by Horace Taylor from 1911, in which John D. Rockefeller examines the White House, after the verdicts in the antitrust trial against his Standard Oil company - himself having become a giant much bigger than the government that tries to reign him in.
This is the modern version of that.
The article can be read here. Thanks to art director Siung Tjia.
