"It's the end of the world, one magazine at a time... I'm part of the generation that never made anything new. Supposedly." - John Paul Thurlow
I was reading the Globe and Mail Style section as I do most Saturdays and came across the most amazing pencil drawings I had ever seen. The feature was on an artist by the name of John Paul Thurlow who is re-creating every great magazine and cover in his massive personal collection. Finishing his 100th cover, he is celebrating with an exhibition (KK Outlet) and with a book (available on his website).
Why, you ask? Well, it is all about re-creating these popular magazine covers and adding his own spin on them. Making them unique and one of a kind once again.
I absolutely love each drawing. The detail in each one is out of this world and with Thurlow putting his own spin on each one makes this art project, one that sticks out!
