Web-savvy Reader of Immense Attractiveness:
We created a little gift for you.
Christina Perry and Derrick Gee are two illustrators I commissioned for the Mad Men Unbuttoned book (pre-ordering is for winners!) to make it pretty. There are 5 original pieces and they are beautiful as this wallpaper you see above.
For this illustration we were trying to isolate what motivated us to do the book, we figured out that we loved so much was to getting closer to the characters by filling in the gaps. Looking at the history that surronds them and plugging it into the personal details of their lives. So Christina, Derrick and I imagined all the little treasures we would find in Don’s desk.
*A movie ticket from La Notte (one of Don’s favorite flicks)
*A copy of ‘Man in the Gray Flannel Suit’ which appears on his Sterling Cooper bookshelf.
*Keys to the Cadillac
*Mints for kissing your wife, ex-wife, or otherwise.
*Cufflinks in case a change of shirts is order.
*And of course, Don’s bread and butter: some Luckys.
