Ever since I was a little boy, I enjoyed drawing monsters.
I would spend ages assembling fangs, eyes, scales, and horns into the creative critters of my imagination.
This week in my cartoon for The Economist.
I was able to put my youthful zeal for beasts to good use.
I wanted to create two toothy cartoon abominations to help explain the uncomfortable choices facing Britain in the fast approaching run up to Brexit next spring.
The British Prime Minister, Theresa May this week finally put forward a draft Brexit plan for the UK.
It was a 500 page colossus that received mixed reviews from her cabinet.
It faces even tougher scrutiny in Parliament which will have to approve it.
When the public faces this Brexit behemoth, they will see a scary creature that will leave damaging tooth marks on many parts of the economy.
A worse option for Brits may be looming.
A no-deal Brexit monster.
A failure to agree on Missus May's deal by March could unleash this feat with even more ferocious bite.
Surely there must be a way to escape these brutes, you may ask.
Well, not according to Missus May and many of her fellow conservatives.
They say a second referendum on Brexit is out of the question.
Asking the citizens to vote again on this weighty issue would they claim unleash even more monstrous consequences.
Is the door an escape or a trap?
There's only way to find out.
What lies behind the door?
We don't know.
