I’ve always loved optical illusions and visual puns. I especially like those paints that involve a face made from other objects, such as Giuseppe Arcimboldo’s Vertumnus, which is a painting of the Holy Roman Emperor Rudolf the rednose… Sorry, I mean: Rudolf II. He did others but that’s probably the most famous.

This was my attempt at doing similar. I thought to draw Dominic Cummings as six other heads: Gove, Boris, Hancock (toothy profile on the left), Raab (in profile in the chin, need to turn it upside down), Pritti Patel (top lip), and Rishi Sunak (nose, inverted). Not sure it works and I might yet try it again.
