It's been a busy few weeks in Cleveland, and as predicted, I've been remiss in posting some of the strong work from the staff. Over the next few days, I'll try for a bit of catch-up.
First up, the cover of our NFL draft preview. The incredible Andrea Levy, illustration; Emmet Smith, design. Tribble and yours truly added some timely art direction.
The dog's name is Wrinkles Brown. He and his owner, Angelo Brown, drove all the way in from Washington, D.C. on Easter morning for the chance to grace the cover.
That's how rabid Browns fans can be.

Excellent illustration. There is nothing more dogly than a Bulldog, but Wrinkles is surprisingly slobber-free for the breed (especially in the presence of draft-choice biscuits, or even the thought of such treats). How did you get the dog shot without the drool?
