Magazine day: C.F. Payne (Time) and Coraline(Wired)

Wow! Have you seen C.F. Payne’s Obama portait for Time?

(You’ll want to see the bigger version of course.)

I was going to call it a Grand Slam, but I think it’s better than any sports metaphor (or Denny’s breakfast item) I can think of. At first glance it looks like a photo but further study shows it to be not just a drawing but a drawing with that great C.F. Payne feel to it. He’s added something so subtle that it barely registers, yet it sums up everything we all want for Obama.


Meanwhile, Wired magazine had a really nice piece on the making of Coraline. I had no idea it was going to look so good. For once, I’m not fearing a kidlit movie! (Except for the scary parts, I mean.)
