I strongly identify with the archetype of the work horse. And a character synonymous with this archetype for me is Boxer, of George Orwell’s Animal Farm.

These illustrations of Boxer come from Ralph Steadman. I can think of no more appropriate artist to embody Orwell’s story of farm animal dystopia: scratchy lines, messy splatters, bulging forms, skewed perspectives.
