Dale Stephanos
Women's Wear Daily.

Women's Wear Daily's Nancy Butkus called earlier this week for an overnight cover. I've been banging my head against a wall trying to refine the story of a children's book I'm writing so I welcomed the 24 hour diversion. The subjects here are David Cary and Frank Benneck of Conde Nast. Time being short and a blizzard tearing it's way up the East Coast I was happy to accept Nancy's direction on the idea and just concentrate on making a good looking piece.
The blizzard hit almost the moment I hit send and we promptly lost power.
Thanks Nancy!
I resisted the almost overwhelming urge to smooth those brush strokes out. Stay away from the smudge tool!
