On a council estate wall metres from east London’s Silicon Roundabout, the big eyes of a vivid tiger peek out from behind a fig tree. 

It’s the latest project of Socialist Worker cartoonist Tim and his collaborator Paul.

They took inspiration from the poem The Tyger by William Blake, who is buried nearby. 

“We wanted to take Blake’s commentary on early capitalism—the furnaces and the satanic mills—and link it to the office blocks of today’s capitalism,” says Tim.

Local children contributed to the mural’s design in a series of workshops.
