BusinessWeek Gets Ripped

Appears this cover from an Asian money magazine took the actual cover artwork directly from BusinessWeek cover. They could of at least warped the text to make it work like the original.

Thanks to Andrew Horton for this.

Japan Tragedy Design Inspiration

Here are some designs & illustrations inspired by the Japan earthquake and tsunami. Interesting to see how different artists approach the same concept. All are nicely done but I think the BusinessWeek and the piece next to it (Edel Rodriguez illo) are my favorites.

"So, You Thought We Wouldn't Notice" Blog

While I'd like to think my blog runs the gamut of tributes, parodies, with a little bit of copycat stuff, the "You Thought We Wouldn't Notice" blog has a ton of examples of downright plagarism, thievery and copyright infringement.

Didn't really see any magazine stuff on the site but worth checking out for sure.

The Stranger's Response to Sarah Palin

The Stranger put out this cover based off the Sarah Palin web graphic shortly after the Gabrielle Giffords shooting. Clever to say the least.

The New Republic Cover Illustration

Original cover illustration by Jason Holley commissioned by the New Republic in August 2006. Illustration then reused for book cover in 2010. (Illustrator presumably negotiated 2nd print rights to the book company.)

Thanks to Christine Car for this.
