Illustration Magazine Cover
The illustration on this cover is a collage of pencil sketches of scenes from the film Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy. Pieced together, these sketches form the portrait of George Smiley, an experienced intelligence officer with the M16 in the film. Smiley keeps the same com-posed face throughout the movie despite the circumstances, raising an increasing suspicion for him the further into the film the audience watches. It is this impenetrable face that is Smiley's key to surviving the Circus and forms an unforgettable image throughout the film. This is why I chose to depict this image, in such a manner, to front the design for the cover.
