Chris Kasch Illustrates the Cover of Ad Age
Chris Kasch illustrates the cover of the first Creativity issue of Ad Age. The issue features the 2011 Creativity 50, the magazine's annual list of the year's most influential and inspirational creative figures. Kasch's illustration is of eight of the honorees-Anders Wahlquist, Iain Tait, James Moorhead, Andy Samberg, Paris Barclay, Angela Ahrendts, Trey Parker and Tina Fey.
Ann Christine Diaz, the Creativity editor of Ad Age, approached Kasch for the cover after she saw his Rat Pack illustration. Kasch created a similar scene with a selection of the issue's honorees. He took great care to make the people look as natural as possible with the correct angles and view points. The final illustration was created with acrylic on paper and took about ten days to complete.
The Creativity issue of Ad Age is out now.
