Magazine covers can be eye-catching, but not nearly as entertaining as this John Paul Thurlow project. Thurlow's goal is to complete a sketch of every magazine he owns and/or loves. Already 70 covers in, this artist won't stop until print publications do.

Check out ten of Thurlow's sketches above to see his creative talents in portraiture, pencil sketching, typography, graphic design, and great ideas.

Implications - Some of the popular models on the front covers of the magazines include Kate Moss and Twiggy. John Paul Thurlow adds his own twist to the covers by drawing extra scribbles, words and even making some of the models look like scary clowns. He is definitely an interesting artist worth checking out.
