Summerfield's sketches cover the biggest headlines in daily news, touching on everything from President Obama's election to Queen Elizabeth's Jubilee to the London Olympics. But on his website, the artist points out one significant moment that stood out to him. "I was particularly moved by the news of Claire Squires who died whilst running the London marathon... her tragic death prompted other runners and people around the UK to donate over $1.5 million to the Samaritans."
