Contest Brief

I'm looking for a political cartoon style of drawing. Its a single drawing, quite detailed and the intention is to have it published in a major newspaper along with an article. The topic is not political as such, but relates to the world of finance. Broadly, it is a drawing of a person in a suit, walking a tightrope over lava, with sharks in the lava (only large fins visible) and there are two aggressive characters - one either side of the tightrope walker. They are shouting at the tightrope walker, making him very nervous and wobbly on the tightrope.
The tightrope walker is walking away from the viewer. So you can see him from behind, at an angle. The aggressive characters either side of him may be huge dogs. Only the heads need to be in frame. Perhaps one is a Rottweiler and one is an alsation. They are barking at him, saliva flying. The barking is making him wobble.

The idea of the cartoon, which should be in harsh colour (red orange lava, black suit, black and brown dogs) is to show the difficult challenge faced by corporate auditors. One dog has a label that says management. The other has a label (maybe on it's collar) that says audit committee. management is shouting : help us make sense of this. The audit committee dog is shouting : Keep them honest!

On the fins of the sharks are the words: ASIC, Proxy Advisors, Competitors. Only one of each, per fin.
The image should portray how difficult it is for the tightrope walker. He/she has competing, aggressive forces pushing him in opposite directions as he battles to stay on the rope. If he falls, he burns. In addition, the ASIC, proxy advisors and competitors will get him if he falls.

    Hi - from the winning submission I would need something of sufficient quality / resolution that it could be used in a newspaper. Also need the artist to confirm the work is entirely original (no unauthorized use of stock images).
