“George Peabody was one of the great millionaire philanthropists. An illustration for Ian Hislop for his talk on the age of the Do-Gooder. Here he is surveying his good works – the Peabody Buildings – and suffering an autographic pun. One of many little twists I like to give drawings to keep me on my toes and George in his place. I hope Ian Hislop approves. I’m a big fan!”
