Had a great time at the Wizard show in NOLA and did two commissions. I'll upload better scans later but I took this picture with my iPhone.

Mad Men is probably one of my all time favorite TV shows. Pan Am tried desperately to copy their success but couldn't manage to incorporate the subtle nuances. It's not just about the clothing. It's about the attitude. The quiet moments. Mad Men does everything right. It's about storytelling.

The other commission can be seen here by clicking on this [link]

Hope you dig it.

I'm a university student doing a presentation on popular TV media.
I love this picture, and I was wondering if I could use it in the PowerPoint presentation?
Credit will be given on the slide its featured on.

Thank you for your time

Brilliant - I love how you bring a really distinctive style to the image yet still maintain the resemblance.

I agree with you about Pan Am - they're really quite different shows tonally and structurally, but Mad Men is much richer.

Hahahah great pieces! Starting watching the whole series a little while ago and still working my way through the dvds to get current. Was thinking of doing some sort of fan art for the series.
