Newsweek cover for the July 20th issue, about who will be the future leader of the Palestinians.
Art direction by Michael Goesele.
Roughs. Michael like the crowd, but it felt too "Arab Spring"
So I made a quick modification to address that.
And then a tight color sketch for him to tryout with typography.
Micheael mentioned the possibility of a spread on the inside, so I made sure the final illustration could cover that usage as well.
