Great illustrators think alike (or maybe it was the editor's idea.) Anyhow these came out at the same time. Steve Brodner's Odd Couple tribute on the cover on National Journal and Victor Juhasz Odd Couple tribute in Rolling Stone.

Current covers for Seattle Magazine and Seattle Met magazine. (Note: this is one of four different covers that Seattle Met ran that month commemorating the 50th anniversary of the World's Fair.)
Thanks to Michael Wichita/John Keatley.

The Village Voice cover was from Sept. 25th, 2001. (Art director: Ted Keller, Photographer: Andre Souraujon.)
Reader's Digest is using the same image for the September 2011 issue.
"We thought the Voice cover was so brilliant, so perfect, and so under-seen, that the image should be used again" said RD's creative director, Robert Newman.
Also included a few more 9/11 covers with a similar feel.
Thanks to BN for the covers and info.

I came across this blog today. It has a ton of tributes, ripoffs and everything in between. It's mainly Greek magazines taking off on U.S. magazines. I posted only a few.
There is a lot more on their site:

FSB (Fortune Small Business) cover from May 2008 and Reader's Digest for November 2009.
Fortune Small Business specifically commissioned photographer Michael Cogliantry for the FSB cover. (The type the crook is holding was actually real and made of foam core.) Photo editor for the shoot was Katy Howe Binder.
Looks as if Reader's Digest bought secondary rights to the image and added their own type in the crook's hands.
Thanks to Scott A. Davis for the images and info.

A cool illustration for the May/June 2011 issue of AARP. Design Director Scott A. Davis commissioned Milton Glaser to update his classic Dylan illustration. Thanks to Robert Newman for the heads up.
Worth checking out my previous post where Vanity Fair pays homage to Glaser.

After seeing the latest 'True Blood' magazine cover for EW, I thought I'd see what other covers used this concept. Any other notable 'American Gothic' covers I'm missing? I have a feeling there are some more recent tributes that I'm missing.

Here are two covers using profile picture collages to illustrate the Facebook / Twitter friend stories.
Ironically, my avatar self portrait was included on both of these covers. (Being FB/Twitter friends with art directors has its perks.)
Thanks to Ryan & Martin for the cover fun!
