I was contacted by the wonderful Editor of the mag, Christian Williams, who gave me another opportunity to create a cover for their next issue. They were knocking around ideas for the March/April ish which had a feature about masculinity. Basically its about how the old image of a tough guy/men who don't deal with their emotions, can be damaging or dangerous.
To convey this image, Christian proposed "Mad Men" character and symbol of a cool tough guy, Don Draper in his office reading the landmark book on feminism "The Feminine Mystique" with tears runing down his face.
Jon Hamm who plays Draper has such a great face to draw. The man has a gift for expression.
There is a ton of reference for Mad Men out there, I tried to nail his office as best I could.
This was another great job, I had a lot of fun working on. Thank you once again to Christian and the good folks over at the Utne Reader.
