I've been working on a magazine cover assignment for Hartford. Picked the decade of the 50's, TIME magazine and am using a Ben Shahn/David Stone Martin (DSM) approach. I was going to go for black and white but Churchill was such a colorful character. I probably could have pushed the color even more, but I was concentrating on the line, which is tricky. DSM was an assistant to Ben Shahn and it shows in his work, especially the jazz album cover designs from the fifties. May do some other versions...hmmm.
