I sketched this from a magazine cover I found online. I forget the name of the artist or the magazine's title, but it was originally done in the 1930s. I found the image striking in its simplicity and thought it was a beautiful way to grab attention from the other magazines that would have surrounded it on the newsstand. Nobody really does cover design like this anymore, and it's just another example of clarity being trampled over in favor of the modern mass consumption of garish effects. Go to a bookstore and survey the wall of magazines there. You'll be hard pressed to find anything as simple, beautiful, and effective as this.
