Brian Sanders For MAD MEN

Here's a cool piece of news. Three years ago I worked with Rian Hughes on the art reconstruction for his book called Lifestyle Illustration of the 60s. According to today's news, it was this very book that Mad Men's creator, Matthew Weiner was reading when he saw examples of Brian Sanders' work and promptly led to him being signed up to illustrate AMC's ad campaign for the new season.

And just in case you're wondering what art reconstruction is exactly. Because most of the original art had been lost for decades, we worked on scans from vintage magazine editorials, bringing the original colours back to life and reconstructing areas that had been obscured by type. See below.
